I made this placard with giant rubber stamps I made for my residency at the People’s History Museum. All week I’m making placards for our People’s Protest. Come along to the Protest on Friday 15 August at 5pm. You can protest about anything that you want (as long as it’s not offensive obviously!). Join the Facebook group and invite your friends! https://www.facebook.com/events/331129147050204/

Yellow stencil mono print made at Hot Bed Press.
I was really pleased with this, the yellow was lush and the print crisp.
