Ghost Post - Inspiration

David Gentleman - Battle of Britain
I like his collaged composition tests for stamps, as he is able to simplify the imagery into recognisable shapes and colours that work well, creating dynamic compositions. 

David Hockney - Commemoration of the European Single Market 1992
This stamp stood out for me because of the colour and shapes. It looks like it is based on an underwater theme, rather than the European Single Market. I like the simple colours and texture used. 

Lucien De Roeck - Brussels Expo 1958
I really like the dynamic composition of this stamp. The stars get larger as they go up the stamp, and the colour change links to my project.
