I was unhappy with my previous version so decided to do a new one. I liked the idea of it raining bicycles rather than bombs!. A slightly satirical, tongue-in-cheek, work. I wanted to contrast the old with then new, sepia with colour etc.. I also wanted the contrast to be stark and thus the abrupt change from sepia to colour.
Just to add that for those unfamiliar with Boris Johnson he’s the current Major of London closely associated with all things cycling in London and advocate of the rental “Boris bikes ” as they are called. Those unfamiliar with wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill will find volumes of information on him on the web. 🙂
