Anthony Burrill

I first came across Anthony Burrill’s work when I sublet a friend’s apartment in Williamsburg last fall. She had this poster framed on her living room wall and it just about sums up y life philosophy. I was bullied miserably at one school – I wrote about it here – and I always determined that I would not be one of those people who stomps on others to succeed. Sure, I’m not perfect and I still sometimes behave in ways that embarrass myself, but I hope I am self-aware enough to know when I am wrong.

This poster on my office wall serves as an excellent reminder of the central tenets of any good business, don’t you think?

Woodblock poster, open edition, signed in pencil, 51x76cm.
Printed by Adams of Rye onto 100% recycled paper using traditional woodblock printing techniques. £40.00 + P&P

Anthony Burrill was born in Littleborough, Lancashire, and has an MA in Graphic Design from the Royal College of Art, London. He now lives and works on the Isle of Oxney, Kent.
