Mike Wood is an internationally acclaimed street performer, best known for catapulting a cabbage through the air which he catches on a spiked helmet. No, seriously. He's great. Funny, too.
Mike approached me to create a promo piece which he could send to the World Busker Fest 2010 organizers, one of whom is an avid philatelist. As such, the solution was to create a stamp commemorating Mike's appearance.
After a couple of concepts, it became clear that the solution was to take the iconic image from Mike's act and present it in a clean, contemporary design.
