011a&b – Queens Guard

011a - Queens guard

Leaving Chichester behind me was always going to be emotional, but nothing like coming home to London. This was a really enjoyable piece to make with the single black background merging into the black uniform of the soldier, which was fun. Chichester gave me a few ideas about cuts, so I didn’t go for the obvious one up the middle and decided to stick to a limited colour palette of glitter gel pens, fineliner and  Sharpie.

Really pleased with the result and the choices I made. I think that the head with lipstick would have looked very odd if I had come up the centre, but the fatter sword and the contrast that it has with the original is quite sweet.

    I did like the Chichester series but this one of a single figure makes a great contrast.

    Love that I’m finally working through the stack of postcards that I have. 2 boxes at home waiting to get the 365 treatment
