This is a poster that I made for the PDYE show, which was arranged and set up by Let’s Recuperate in London last year.
The PDYE (Pounds, Dollars, Yen, Euro) brief was all about value, and we were asked to produce a poster especially for the show based around this theme. I chose to illustrate the Queen mother because of the simple fact that many people in and outside of the UK value the royal family and the monarchy, and the Queen mother is quite an interesting character to draw.
Each poster was limited to a run of 50 prints, which were available to buy. Every print ranged from £1 to £20 depending on how many were sold on the opening night. The price for the first 15 was £1. For the next 10 the price was £3. £6 for the following 10. £10 for the 10 after that, with the last 5 selling for £20.
