Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

'Bathing Machine' is finished just in time for the end of April deadline.

I didn’t want to go down the route of cogs and engines so decided to base my contribution on Victorian Bathing Machines which were designed to preserve the modesty of well brought up Victorian ladies at the beach.

For the artwork I used a palette of the process colours, cyan, magenta and yellow, with the addition of white. It’s bright and cheerful which works with the stylized figures. I was aiming for a children’s illustration type of feel.

The book is digitally printed and assembled as a simple concertina which fits into the wheelbase of the bathing machine to hold it shut.


  1. these costumes...hilarious !

  2. Fabulous colours and I love how the closed book perches with the wheels.


I really appreciate hearing from you. Thank you for taking the time.
