2022 SWELL ARTWORK – Cuddlestown Massacre, Daniel Clemmett

Lots of children and lots of children’s television has got me thinking. Are we all rats on a sinking ship?
Considering nobody is getting out of here alive and we will all share a common fate, is anybody selling anything worth buying?
RAT tests anyone?
Are we being set up to fail?
Can we cuddle, immunise or vote our way out of this rat’s nest?
Come to Rat’s shop, he’s got whatever you want, it costs only yellow jellies and honey cakes, don’t mind that he is a clever rat.
