Caroline Johnson’s “Ta, Love!” on the Bus to Preston

A recent post on the photography site Flickr from talented artist Caroline Johnson grabbed my attention. That’s it, there, above these words.

It’s more of an artwork than a photo. A sketch on a bus on the way to Preston. Annotated with an overheard lancastrian conversation, and with what looks like the bus ticket included for authenticity. It is simply a delight.

Caroline studied at the Harris Art School in Preston then moved to London to take a Diploma in Art and Design from the Central College of Art, studying under such illustrious names as Cecil Collins, Colin Cina and Paul Huxley.

Caroline has kindly allowed us to have a look at more of her artwork. A set of her artwork from Flickr. Here, below these words:
