A college project to do the artwork for a make-believe film. I choose “Dambusters 2” featuring Wing Commander Lenard Cheshire VC. This is the nose-art for his P51 Mustang, and the figure was based on the controversial 2000 Opium advert of Sophie Dahl. I put some pants on her and turned her upright. I gave the film the “Pearl Harbor” treatment i.e. don’t let the facts get in to way of a good story!
The Cheshire Cat is from Lewis Carroll’s depiction of it in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
This is painted in acrylic, on 2 metal panels bolted together. (Lids from twin tub washing machine). Size overall 13" x 24". The rivets are painted on. yr 2000
Stephen Fry has written a screenplay for a new $100million Dambuster movie starring Jame McAvoy as Guy Gibson.
