Bristol Pound Illustration

The Bristol Pound is a new currency designed to encourage local spending and support independent enterprises in Bristol. My work was chosen to feature on the Bristol £ notes, along with seven other winning submissions.

The drawing was a response to the theme ‘Our Environment’. I was asked to sum up my inspiration for the work in two sentences for the Bristol Evening Post:

I wanted to show our environment as a living web of relationships, one that we humans participate in, and help to create or destroy. Bicycles and apple trees characterise Bristol’s green fringe for me, and the fox and magpie are archetypal urban survivors. Cheeky, adaptable, independent, resilient – they are Bristolians, too.
