British Firsts

A series of 6 stamps celebrating Britain's achievements at the Olympic games
I created a series of6 stamps under the theme of "British Firsts."  With the 2012games fast approaching I felt it was appropriate to celebrate Britain’sachievements at the games.  The Greeks have a long history with the gamesand it is largely informed by Greek mythology so I thought that as the gamesare coming to Britain that i should draw inspiration from our ownmythology.  Basing a lot of the aesthetics on tapestries and medieval art Icreated these six past athletes and depicting them as super humans – over exaggeratingtheir achievements.  I decided to screen print the designs to give them amore weathered historical edge and used gold leaf to emphasis to the halo's.
