Manchester Pride

Thrilled to see my image of Manchester Pride Parade up in the Lord Mayor's Parlour, Manchester Town Hall. The illustration is based on the route the parade took in 2014, passing by Albert Square and Manchester Town Hall.

Ltd edition prints (out of just 5), hand-painted in rainbow colours, available from me.
Also online through Folksy
