canon: the art of modern day icons

I was asked by Manson's Press to take part in an exhibition of screen prints, celebrating the pioneers, innovators and masters of the last 50 years. We were essentially asked to take a modern hero and canonise them by illustrating them as a saint.

I chose to illustrate one of my favourite people, RuPaul, to create a 400mm x 500mm 4-colour screen print. hand printed by manson's press onto 310gsm southbank smooth stock.

It’s a limited edition of 50 and available to purchase here.
