Guardian Work - 20 December 2008


A piece for the front cover of last Saturday's Guardian Work section.

Various industry and government bigwigs were asked their wishes and hopes for 2009.
So here it is, a pantomime fairy godmother granting the wishes of a few well-known panto characters ( Cinderella, Jack, Widow Twanky & Aladdin).

At the 11th hour the space got re-sized and I had to re-jig the whole image, including loosing a trap-door on the stage beneath the jolly boxom Fairy ( to indicate the uncertainty of what's to come). A shame I thought, but that's the nature of editorial work.

I saw this at the weekend and thought then it was a great image!

I also thought I saw you on the tube a couple of weeks ago (carrying a rolled up piece of artwork) but having never met you I wasn't sure so kept quiet ;-)

Love the buxom fairy godmother.

The trap-door thing brings back so many memories...
