The Nursery Rhyme series is a set of eight digital collages created using hand drawn imagines which are then assembled in the computer and converted into vector graphics.
The series was created in 2011 and inspired by the idea that traditional English Nursery Rhymes may originally have been based on historical people and events, disguised as satirical propaganda or political protest.
The Grand old Duke of York is said to date back to the Plantagenet dynasty in the 15th century and refer mockingly to the defeat of Richard Duke of York in the Wars of the Roses. He was the father of King Richard III.
