A hand-signed giclée on paper by Billy Connolly, CBE.

This hand-signed giclée is part of Billy Connolly's Spring 2023 release in his highly successful Born On A Rainy Day collection. Displayed on 100% cotton deckle-edged paper, float-mounted in a black painted and silver foiled pine frames, this artwork will add a bold touch of musical and comedic history to your home.

Billy was inspired by seeing baskets of balls in design showrooms. “They’re all over the place now. Balls with balls in them; they have string ones and wax ones and ones with spots on them. the balls from fishing nets to keep them afloat. And glass ones and wooden ones – they keep them in a big dish in design showrooms, and I’ve often wanted one. I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted it for, and it reminded me of one of them.

“I couldn’t think of a name for the piece I started to draw with it, so I thought ‘A Load of Old Bollocks’ would cover it nicely. It’s a lovely statement – a load of old bollocks. You can say it wherever you like, you can say it about Shakespeare – “what a load of old bollocks!” You can say it about songs, poems – “a load of old bollocks!” And it just sums things up. It’s a nice thing, that basket of balls; it’ll never have a use. It’s a load of old bollocks! It’ll never be welded, it’ll never be riveted, it’ll never mean anything to anybody. It’s a load of old bollocks, and it pleases me greatly”.

Also available as part of a portfolio of 6, either framed or unframed.
