British Tourists Abroad

This was the first series I created for the HUMBOLA Exhibition, which is still open to the public this week at Testspace in Leeds. The holiday snapshot illustrations are all based on old family photographs of my parents or my grandparents on various holidays abroad. I had fun drawing them, adding beards, changing hair colour, skin colour and even adding a few pounds, until they were total unrecognisable. The Beach scene is an A3 drawing made up of lots of imaginary characters, taking about a week to finish. I hope you enjoy my sunburnt Brits, go check out these and all the other amazing contributors pieces at Testspace if you're up north this week!
