Mid Week Mix and today’s Longest Reigning British Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II
I’d just like to start today by saying congratulations to the Queen, Elizabeth II. Who, this afternoon, becomes the longest reigning monarch in 1,000 years of British history. Out reigning her great, great, grandmother Queen Victoria by a day. She has served 63 years and 216 days on the throne and that’s quite an achievement by anyone’s standards ! Well done Ma’am !
Since about 2008, I’ve been collecting images from the internet that have caught my eye. Way back then, I wasn’t so diligent in keeping records as to where images came from, or who had painted, photographed, illustrated or indeed created the artwork in the image. So I apologise in advance for their lack of referencing, but to be honest, it was purely about seeing groups of imagery together, that for whatever reason, I enjoyed. As I have managed to amass quite a few of these ‘collaged sheets’, I thought I would share them with you, in the hope that they may also provide some inspiration to you the readers, from their shape, colour, texture or out and out randomness : ) Today’s selection is heavily influenced by the ever so fabulous work of Paul Bommer.
Do let me know your thoughts and which images catch your eye for whatever reason. Also I’d like to mention that I’ve recently started an Instagram page for Fishink Blog. The link is (https://instagram.com/fishinkblog) or you can click on the button on the right of my site. I am building up the collection every week, so if you lovely folk would like to follow me, or leave a comment or see more of my artwork, then please pop on over and check it out today. I’ll look forward to sharing more of my own illustration with you.
