Frank Bird (Menswear)



Although the Unique Wakefield drawings are a commercial project I am trying to draw the independent shops that occupy buildings that have a bit of character about them. The building where Frank Bird Ltd resides definitely has that. The slate roof tops and the elaborate brick decoration for holding wooden guttering in place are wonderful examples of story book type textures. The wooden guttering may still be there, even with detail close ups from my camera I can't quiet make them out.
