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.

On creating the piece, Billy says:

“This is called ‘Headrest’ because it’s a man on a deckchair – with no headrest. That’s one of the failings of deck chairs, they don’t have headrests – your head goes down the back like his does, which puts you in an ideal position for having your throat cut.

“I love those naughty seaside postcards which often have guys in that position. This guy has had a rotten day at work and has gone ‘OOOOHH!’ as he relaxes in his deckchair. I’m very fond of him, I like that when I draw people, I like them. I like them because they are usually hard-working and innocent people who just know what like it is to work and they know what like it is to rest, and they know what it’s all about. And they’re worthwhile and they’re innocent, and they deserve a great deal more credit than they get.

“There’s a thing about deckchairs that has often frightened me. I remember describing to an audience about my daughter Cara in a deckchair when we were on holiday, and she couldn’t fix it properly. I looked away, and the noise came – crack! It’d fallen down on our fingers, And when I said it to the audience, they all went ‘OOOOOHHH!’ The noise of a thousand people expressing sympathy, it was great!”

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