Top British cartoonist Steve Bright first drew this powerful Remembrance illustration for a Sunday newspaper back in 2014, in the year of Tom Piper’s stunning Poppy installation at the Tower of London, and people often ask him for copies.
Steve added to it in following years. Last year saw a little additional ‘masonry work’.
If anyone would like a copy (or an upgrade from the one they already have) drop him a line via his official web site and he’ll send you a high resolution jpeg that you can have printed.
“No charge,” says Steve. “All I’d ask is that when next you buy a poppy, buy an extra one, or pay double the donation for the one you’ve bought (or both). Thank you.”
