answer - NOT A LOT OF MONEY to get this look

Another Happy Shopper from the world of street art and graffiti. If only the London Transport Police were as good at snagging them as we are, eh. Pure Evil has been painting variations of his vampire bunny figure since around 2000. The early work sometimes accompanied by the slogan "War Is So Last Century".

He says he was in Return of The Jedi. People say lots of things they don't mean but he swears it's true. Pure Evil has a solo show in London this month at Old Truman Brewery in the East End. Get there if you can. It should be fun. Or at least check out the images at his website www.pureevil.eu
