Marketing illustration for Old Laundry Theatre, Bowness-on-Windermere

Commissioned by The Old Laundry Theatre in Bowness-on-Windermere to publicise their production of 'The Hired Man' by local author and BBC arts broadcaster Melvyn Bragg.

This illustration had to be punchy so that it would work well in press adverts, and adaptable as it would have to appear in different formats.

My solution was this bold lino-cut style illustration that included all the main themes within the play (hard life of farm labourer, love triangle, WW1 and life in the mines). The various elements were created as freestanding sections so that they could beĀ  moved around to adjust the overall shape of the image.
