Another page from one of last year's notebooks.
These are sketches mostly based on Georgian broadsheets, pamphlets, abecedaria and street cries. It is a period I'm pretty obsessed by, if I'm honest.
Darby and Joan are a generic old couple, while Mother Bunch I think is a pantomime character - probably a brothel or inn-keeper (or if on Bankside, both!).
I particularly like 'Rabbets-O', walking past the Tyburn tree (aka the Three Legged Mare). 'O Clo' was short for 'Old Clothes'.
Ideas for forthcoming screen prints
