On the 1st of August

white rose yorkshire day mercedes leon illustration hallmark uk

The first of August is Yorkshire Day – celebrated in 1975 as a protest against reorganisation from central government, it also marks the emancipation of the slaves from the British Empire in 1834, something William Wilberforce, a Yorkshire MP, had campaigned for. This is an illustration I did for Hallmark UK instagram & social media.
