Pick Me Up - "Oranges & Lemons" (details)





Here is my design for the Pick Me Up graphic fair at Somerset House.

I choice as my subject matter an older and longer version of the children's nursery rhyme 'Oranges & Lemons' as the church of St Clement Danes is only minutes away from Somerset House.

The lines and images connected to each bell refer to trades and events local to each parish - Old Bailey (St Sepulchre) because it stood by the debtors' prison at Newgate, Stepney because it was always associated with sailors and seafaring, St John's chapel in the Tower of London because of its torture chambers and dungeons, Etc., Etc..

I have shown the image in sections so you can see some of the detail.

Click on each image to see it big if you like.
