Captain Britain Commish by Carl-Riley-Art Captain Britain Commish by Carl-Riley-Art
A recent commission of Captain Britain overlooking a London city scape. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the buildings; he’s perched on a battlement of the Tower of London with the Swiss Re tower (or gerkin as its better known) in the background. For those of you that are; yep, I’ve used a little artistic licence on the position of the buildings :-) anyway, the idea was to illustrate the contrast in building types from the medieval architecture to the ultra modern, which fitted the brief nicely.

Cheers for lookin!
