Death and The MallAugust 30, 2007
The inspiration for Richmond came when I saw a teenage goth couple playing crazy golf in…God, Blackpool, was it? Somewhere like that. In my memory, the guy has a huge skull on the back of his T-shirt and white make-up, long buckled-up boots, the whole bit…and he was very carefully writing down his score with one of those tiny pencils while standing beside a miniature windmill.
In the end, my Richmond has been bouncing back and forth between extremes…I never know how far to push the make-up, but this picture suggests that, when it comes to real life, there is no such thing as ‘too far’.
