Greetings from Mendips

For an article about John Lennon's house (more like a middle class hero really.)
I wanted a vintage postcard feel. The lack of any guitar in the house was noted, so the silhouette 'gap' was always part of the design. Something else was needed, the strawberry was just right, and obviously signifies strawberry fields for ever.

Personal column

This editorial illustration of a vintage personal column for a 'guitar for life' was simple but an effective solution. I had to match the old newspaper with the design I created.
