Great British Bake Off illustration for the Zimbio 2017 Pop Culture Coloring Book

Colouring book illustration for Zimbio

At the end of 2017 I was commissioned to create an illustration to feature in a colouring book for Zimbio, a pop culture website based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

As well as myself there were several contributing illustrators including Mat Roff, Rafael Hidalgo and Buttercrumble. Our task was to interpret a memorable or important moment from 2017 in TV, movies or music.

I chose to do the Great British Bake Off. I felt it represented 2017 because the year in which seemed to be even stupider than the one before, Britain can always be relied on to distract itself with cake and innuendo. Also no-one else had picked it.

The title of the piece is The Consumption of St Paul and features Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding preparing to devour Paul Hollywood. Art direction was by Lani Conway.
