26 – Learn to Fly Here
Artist: Denise McCoid The Crafty Den Illustrates
Sponsor: Smailes Goldie Group
Location: Regent’s Court, Princess Street, HU2 8BA
About the Design:
The 1930s saw a heavy promotion of air travel, and posters advertising flying schools were a common sight. This moth is based on these posters, providing an atmospheric look into the times using a complimentary blend of painting techniques and bold colours overlapping the natural palettes of the sky in the background.
