This Les Miserables (with pandas) style bas has been a best seller in Camden Market for over 3 years now and finally its come to etsy!
A short history of Les Pandas.
In 2010 when I first saw Les Mis in the Queens Theatre, I immediately fell in love with Victor Hugo’s story of courage and redemption and wanted to incorporate my affection into a new design.
This is original full colour poster I came up with:
The popularity of the poster lead me to print bags with iron-on transfers featuring the same designs. After a basic cost-viability check, however, I
decided to go the whole way and make Les Pandas a dedicated silk screen print.
My first job was to strip Les Pandas Down, colour wise. I first experimented with 2 and 3 colours but found this made the image look garish so I
just went for simple one colour black and white.
…and there you have it!
