The Chocolate Factory

This is the digital file from a new silkscreen I printed yesterday.

The billboards are candies mentioned in Roald Dahl’s CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, which I reread for the millionth time recently.

This is the moment where the Great Glass Elevator explodes through the roof and flies over the city to Charlie’s house.

I included lots of little references to keep it interesting for me - including the “UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT” sign, alluding to Charlie taking over the factory and the metallic gold ground, a reference to the “5th Golden Ticket” found by Charlie Bucket.

And of course there is a small billboard which simply says “DAHL.”
