It’s Like Blackpool Illuminationns In Here
(Fourth Edition)

‘Northernisms’ is a series of prints that celebrates the quirks of Northern language. Consisting of phrases that may not mean anything in most of the country, but carry particular weight or meaning in the North Of England. “It’s like Blackpool Illuminations in here” is a phrase generally used by the patriarchal figure to convey annoyance that someone younger, who doesn’t pay the electricity bill, has left all the lights on in the house. A3 or A4 prints with 8 colour ultra-chrome ink process on 188gsm radiant white watercolour paper. A4 is a limited run of 10 prints, hand numbered with a print-run tag of ‘BP4’. The A3 version is an open edition.

All prints are shipped with a backing board and in a compostable film sleeve, and all postal packaging is recycled/recyclable. In an effort to further sustainability, I try to reuse as much of my production materials as possible; this may mean that backing boards etc may be cut from old cardboard packaging.

My name is Tim and I operate as Secret Industries. I’m a graphic designer, illustrator and I like to experiment with screen-printing where possible. I also like to try and hustle my artwork at print fairs and makers markets. I’m a proud Northerner, and this has a great influence on my work. Other influences include my love for music, food, tattoos, animals, plants, skeletons and outer space!
