A day in the eyes of
Pete Fowler

Third up in our series of through-the-keyhole-style artist photo journals is the man behind @themonsterist, the one and only Pete Fowler. You’ll have seen Pete’s work everywhere from vinyl toys, to exhibition paintings, wall murals, his Seahawks music and of course his legendary pairing with the Super Furry Animals. Now you can see a day through his eyes. Take it away Pete…
