This is one of my favourite ever portraits. I think The Goonies is one of the top five films from my childhood - it's nigh on the perfect kids movie. I was ten when it came out and was pretty much the ideal age for it's blend of adventure, idiocy, fantasy and thrills. Anyway, I'd been dying to do something Goonies themed for ages and then it struck me there was only one way to head, down Truffle Shuffle avenue. The Truffle Shuffle is one of those movie moments that, as a child, stays with you, popping up every now and again and making you chuckle to yourself. The real challenge with this piece was getting the uplifted and scrunched-up shirt just right, so I decided to split it into sections and illustrate it with loads of detail - it would've been a lot easier to blag some kind of collage effect, but I wanted to get it just right. I might turn it into a mug at some point.
