Upstairs at the Ritzy // Flyer // Parakeets of Brixton!!

This illustration is for the back of the Upstairs at the Ritzy flyer, which lists the upcoming events for the bar above the Ritzy Picturehouse Cinema in Brixton (tis my favourite cinema in London but I might be a bit bias).

The brief was to produce something Music or Brixton related. In the wake of a week of rather depressing events throughout the whole of London I decided to make an illustration that is positive and colourful, something that would reflect the diverse and rich culture of the area in which the cinema is located. I've also been thinking about drawing these birds for a while, this little guy is the Alexandrine Parakeet, a character that has taken up residence in South London.
