Squeee, we can finally share this with the world! (well, I’ll post something later to share with the rest of the world who are still asleep, but for now….YOU GUYS, YES, YOU - CHECK THIS OUT! ^_^)

So, myself, Kate Brown and Paul Duffield have been doing a little work with the Tower of London. Yes, the Tower of London! If you’re half as much of a history nerd as we are, you’ll know how exciting that’s been for us. The scaffolding shown in the photo just went up this week. We chose a few key moments/characters from the Tower’s history for the project. Kate and I illustrated and coloured a few scenes each, while Paul pulled it all together and added design elements with the amazing arches. And the Tower have printed them up onto the scaffolding hoarding. Life sized, baby!

(and yes, all you Richard fans, that there is a life-sized Richard III - just for you <3)

The scaffolding will be up for a good few months. So if you’re planning a visit, enjoy! ^_^

Ahhh thanks for posting this, Emma!!! Was a bit worried my Jane would be too pale in that yellow but it don’t look too bad! It’s so nuts to see them at this size, oh my god! We gotta get pix of us gurning away in front of them! I wanna get a pic of me next to Little Richard, I love how you drew him so much, he looks like a beautiful little doll, argh, argh arghakljdaklsjdasd <3 Are you gonna put up your pics as separates? I will if you will!!!!!

This was an amazing project to work on, and we all had a lot of fun researching the little history snippets and working together. I can now tell the difference between all the royal guards!!!!! 8D Thanks so much to Paul for his work on figuring out the printing side of things and Professor Layton-ing them all together like this with such pretty designs. I expect we’ll all be making numerous trips to the TOL in the next six months (UNADULTERATED SHRIEKS OF PURE JOY), so there’s sure to be more pics. As Emma says, if you wanna visit the Tower this summer you should totes get pics of yourselves next to our dudes and ladies and send them to us!!! x
