To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Glenrothes High School, where I work, I did this watercolour illustration then had it printed as postcards. I sold most of the postcards to the school at cost price to put on the merchandise stall at the anniversary events, and I kept a handful to use myself.
I also allowed the school to use the illustration on the invitations to one of the events, and on the powerpoint that the 6th years made, and I used it on some of the folders of memorabilia that were on display at the events.
The picture shows the assembly hall, which is wedge shaped, and I wanted it to look a bit like a slice of cake so I left the rest of the school building off. I originally wanted a candle on top, but didn't have space. I've also been told the building looks like a spaceship in this picture! On the left are the school ties, a tree that's in the middle of the playing fields and has been there long before the school was built, and the pond that is no longer a pond, with my brother, my mum and myself on the bridge!
