My Mother and Other Strangers

Beginning In Autumn 2016, 'My Mother and Other Strangers' is a drama series produced by BBC Northern Ireland for BBC Worldwide.  Many of the key locations were filmed right down the road from my house in Strangford, County Down and it's fantastic to see them on the TV!  After attending a special preview screening of the first episode with the director and writers I produced an alternative poster inspired by great war time illustration styles or watercolour, pastel and charcoal I wanted to poster to have the feeling of being drafted in a sketchbook. The piece was drawn initially by hand on tracing paper to give it a lighter, rougher, sketchbook feel, before being transferred into Photoshop for painting.
