Swipe File – Jamie Redknapp, Jack of Fables and the Flying Friar

Posted by January 29, 2010 Comment

What would former star English footballer and current sports presenter Jamie Redknapp look like in a silly wig? The cover to Jack Of Fables #44 knows.

And just to show that I can’t escape it either. A 1962 film has just been released on DVD that I wish I’d seen a few years ago…

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself.  If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn’t judge, it’s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
