So FINALLY the Lord Mayor's Show poster has gone up around town. People have been taking photos from all over the place! If you see one somewhere, please do send me a photo and try and include the location if possible. Thanks!

It's also been spotted at Bond Street Station and at Earl's Court.
I've just finished working on a papercut commission which is destined for a family in Dubai. My client was very specific about all the tiny details that you can see in the picture, from the man singing with a microphone, to the lady of the house tending the plants, with her doctor's bag on the table. Many of the other tiny little details are also specifically to order.
So here it is - I can finally show you the poster I was working on over the whole of the summer!
It's fair to say that quite a lot of it is bizarre and surreal - but that completely works with papercutting so no problem there!
My brief was to show the Guildhall surrounded by a parade of characters. Some of them are the traditional uniformed folk that accompany the Lord Mayor on his annual parade. Others were specifically requested - such as Dick Whittington, a pianist, a snake, a pig, chickens, people dressed as fish, a thistle. And others were of my own choice - such as the Pearly King and Queen and the chap dressed in a canoe costume. Plus much much more! Take your time and have a browse around!
