JAMES GANDOLFINI BUON' ANIMA
Now then. It's not that often you are left flat out gob smacked and genuinely gutted by a famous death, but when James Gandolfini died suddenly in June it left the world totally shocked and stunned! Here at CC we were huge fans of big Jim. First coming to our attention in one of our favourite films in True Romance as mob henchman Virgil who meets his match with Alabama Worley, to the role that cemented his place in history as Tony Soprano the troubled mob boss trying to run his two families and all the mither and pain that comes with it. For us most certainly, The Sopranos is/was the greatest series in the history of television, revolutionising it in fact and he was central to the whole thing with his outstanding powerful portrayal. He was a bona fide star, taken far too early.
People asked us to do something, another tee. But given we'd already done one nod to Tony and another one to the series we felt we should do something a little different, so we got Peter to come up with a new commission and we release an A3 print that comes in limited numbers of 51.
