I thought I would do:
Elvis - King
Freddie Mercury - Queen
Michael Jackson - Jack
My first lino cut (below) is nice but I want a nice unified theme.
I would like to combine a cameo of the fellas in a 'Penny black' style but in a playing card context. I think it will work well with the kind of textures I can get with lino.
The Penny Black was the world's first adhesive postage stamp used in a public postal system. It was issued by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on 1 May 1840, for official use from 6 May of that year.
All London post offices received official issues of the new stamps but other offices throughout the United Kingdom did not, continuing to accept postage payments in cash only for a period. Post offices such as those in Bath, began offering the stamp unofficially after 2 May.
I am hoping to combine the stamp, music and playing card to produce as set of three picture cards in the above style.
