Framed Liz at No10 Fancy Dress Party

Completed Work, Current Project, festival, ideas, Work in Progress

The Liz Project started from a photo I took at Blissfields Festival. It sparked my interest in a set of illustrations about Queen Elizabeth. It was a group of friends at the festival all wearing the same Queen mask so I gathered them up together to shoot a group photo using a Canon 15mm fisheye lens. This was a great way to get the gang together with a smoking Liz as the focus point.

The photo spawned a number of ideas. Collecting together a few photos I took of other people made new scenarios of the Queen in different situations.
