How does one top this? Well, The Pavement, a free magazine  offering independent advice hard-hitting and entertaining information for homeless people in the UK, has decided to use The Flux as their front cover for their April issue! Ismail attends the printmaking course at Crisis, co-ordinated by Paula Lonergan,  the Art Manager.  He created the background painting first using acrylic paint, then he screen printed over using his own stencilling...
