Happy memories of Punch and Judy shows from my childhood!

I created this illustration a few months ago by first sitting and thinking about what made me happy when I was little. Unfortunately happy memories were a little scarce but the one that stuck in my mind the most was standing and watching the Punch and Judy shows! I remember being glued to the shows and trying to get as near as I could so I could hold on to the little white fence that was used for child crowd control in those days!! 😀

I know that nowadays Punch and Judy shows aren’t seen as being politically correct. Seen to be violent and abusive and utilising stereotypes. But you know what… As a nipper I just found it total fun and escapism, and with the home life I had this proved to give great respite!! ☺

This paint g is for sake and is on exhibition @Oriel ynys mon, Llangefni, anglesey until August 21st 2018, I will also be doing some limited edition prints.
