“මේ සීතල පළාත් වලට රා හොඳත් නෑ අරක්කු විතර…” (Trans.) For these cold areas, it’s not even toddy that works. It’s arrack.
This convincing arrack uncle was illustrated by the Sri Lankan comic art veteran Bandula Harischandra. We love how well Bandula has captured the syrupy smile that almost always precedes a proposition to drink some arrack. The arrack culture is so deeply woven into Sri Lanka, that this smiling uncle trying to convince to drink some with him is a character you would probably come across in the island story encountered here.
That’s why when we met Bandula Harischandra at his home, we asked for special permission from him to reproduce and resell this particular image. It’s now part of our screen-printed poster series.
Arrack is the remedy: framed screen-print
