Giant Me on Clapham High Street!

Many thanks to @Kimanjj on Twitter who spotted me much larger than life on Clapham High Street. Yes, this is me, bashing up a piano with a skirting board. I’d just like to point out that it’s not as easy as it looks, especially whilst balancing on one leg, wearing high heels and pulling a suitable ‘piano bashing’ face.

The enormous billboard (it wraps right around the block) is for a new building that looks like it’s going to be incredible – you can see plans and so on here: along with me looking a little bit like a street urchin! I can’t tell you how glad I am that my fringe and bowl-head layer have grown out…

Just in case you’re interested, here are some shots from the actual shoot – just to prove that not everything is added in digitally in post-production. The plaster dust, white paint and piles of rubble are all very much real!
