Paul Weller signed print


Tonic Music for Mental Health are delighted to announce the raffle of a signed Paul Weller print, which has been kindly donated by photographer Derek D’Souza.

Each £5 donation will entitle you to one virtual raffle ticket, £10 for two, and so on. Please leave your name with your raffle ticket purchase or we will be unable to enter you into the raffle.

The prize:

  • Paul Weller A1 print.

  • Dimensions: 841mm x 443 mm.

  • Signed by Paul Weller in silver sharpie pen in the middle of the print.

  • Signed and numbered by Derek D'Souza 100/100.

  • Please note, the watermark will not be on the print.

  • A certificate of authenticity will be provided by Derek.

This stunning photo of Paul Weller was taken by Derek D’Souza at the Royal & Derngate in Northampton on 2nd April 2017, the second night of the 10 date “A Kind Revolution” UK Tour. Having reviewed the images from the gig, Derek wanted to create an almost pencil drawing style, and took the colour levels right down in the photo. He was delighted with the finished result and also had a laminate coating on the photographic paper to give it more of a matte look and feel, which works especially well with low colour or black and white images. Derek arranged to meet Paul at his Black Barn studios on 5th February 2018, mainly because it was the first opportunity to give him a copy of his latest book “In Echoed Steps: The Jam and a Vision of Albion”, a collaboration with writer Simon Wells and designer Paul Skellett, and the Paul Weller print is in the first part of the story. Being so personal, Derek wanted to give Paul a copy in person if at all possible, and was happy to wait a bit longer. Paul really liked the print and happily signed it – Derek had asked him to sign two prints, both to be donated to charities of his choice, and Derek explained who they were for, and he was interested to know. The Paul Weller print, kindly donated by Derek D'Souza, is now being raffled in aid of our new initiative the Tonic Rider.

The Tonic Rider programme supports live music venues across the UK by raising awareness of suicide and mental health issues within the music industry.

The programme is designed for artists, roadies, managers, promoters, sound crews, production crews and everyone in between. Tonic's aim is to target green rooms and venues across the UK, and to include the Tonic Rider on all rider lists and wall posters.

The Tonic Rider provides information on coping strategies, anxiety, depression, performance anxiety and post-show blues, along with signposting to services that can help in a crisis.

By supporting the Tonic Rider, you will be joining us on our mission to raise mental health awareness, challenge stigma and promote mental wellbeing through music and the arts.
