daviddoran: F, Fish in Fulham // The Loop I recently created this 2 colour risograph print of a fishmongers in Fulham for The Loop. It’s part of an illustrated alphabet series, where a whole bunch of talented illustrators have related an animal to an area of London beginning with their chosen letter.
