Brexit has had everyone in the UK in a spin lately. It got me thinking about what make us individually British. This design was inspired by such thoughts. I wanted to portray the stark contrast between the British stiff upper lip and anarchic rebellion of our popular culture. Inspired by 70’s Punk I created a bold alternative to the tradition Union Jack flag, distressing, then layering it together with handmade paint splats. To contradict this riotous outburst of colours and shapes I produced some delicate hand drawn graphics of our Queen's Crown Jewels, representing the nation's fortitude and self-restraint. Strong and dependable, yet always ready to take a back seat in the name of creativity.
