Following David's sensational Chicks With Horses, here's his long-awaited and much-anticipated Chicks With Lawn Mowers. Unexpectedly (to me, anyway) most of these are women with ride on lawn mowers! But there are a few pushing the regular kind. There are also comix featuring Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard giving a press conference aboard her ride on mower; world's richest woman and mining magnate Gina Rinehart bossing around her lawn mowing slave; and Russian President Vladimir Putin with his mower. Watch him deal with those disrespectful Pussy Riot girls!

Xerox art aficionados are advised to pick this one up to examine the wonderful and mysterious results of David's photocopier manipulations. Some of his images of lawnmower girls look like assemblages of Lego bricks.
