I AM Yorkshire

An A3 illustrated poem and poster written by East Yorkshire's town crier and writer Michael Wood, and East Yorkshire illustrator and artist Eleanor Tomlinson.


I’m five-million people who enjoy a big brass band,

I’m the place where aliens would mostly like to land,

I’m a tyke (in the nicest way) with a welcoming ‘Howdo’,

I’m the City of York, two-millennia old – and new,

I’m the soap opera Emmerdale, I’m artist David Hockney,

I’m thankfully not Eastenders, who would be a cockney?


These are the words written by local town crier and writer Michael Wood in his “lockdown love letter to all things Yorkshire”. As a Yorkshire lass, and the illustrator of these wonderful, smile-twitching lines, Eleanor was excited from the beginning to work with Michael and bring his words to life. A quirky and colourful collaboration by two East Yorkshire creatives to celebrate everything we love about our home county during a global pandemic.


Poster size: A3 ( 29.7cm x 21cm) 


Limited Stock

Eleanor does not stock many prints at her studio, therefore there may be a 7-10 day turn around for some prints. If you require a product soon, please contact Eleanor to discuss options and she will do her best to help.


Framing Options


Eleanor is very excited to be able to offer mounting and framing options, enabling you to order your poster ready framed to hang straight up on your wall at home. If you select ‘framed’, you have a choice between two wooden frames, in either black and white to compliment Eleanor's artworks and suit most interiors.


These frames are manufactured in the UK and each order is then framed by Eleanor. All frames are paired with a conservation glacier coloured mount. Each frame comes with the necessary fixings, D-rings and string, for you to attach and hang on your desired wall space at home.


Frame Size for A3 Poster: Approx 55cm x 43cm extrenal dimensions with the print mounted in a 5cm width mount.


If you would like alternative options to the frames Eleanor is currently offering please don't hesitate to get in touch and she is happy to help and assist wherever possible. Equally is you would prefer to have a glass frame instead of the acryclic glass replacement, this is possible to order upon request. Eleanor packages every order as safely as possible and to the best of her ability, however, cannot be held responsible if any glass breakages and subsequent injuries occur during delivery. She would always recommend collection for orders including glass.


*Please note!* These framing options are a new addition to Eleanor's website and during these first trial weeks she does not have many in stock, therefore it is likely the case that your frames will be ordered in for each order whilst she establishes demand levels for this new service and between frame options. This could mean there could be up to a 3 week wait initially between placing your order and receiving your framed print (particularly during the partial Coronavirus lockdown). If you need your framed print soon and/or for a particular date please double check with Eleanor prior to ordering to ensure she can meet your upcoming deadline.


Each product is designed by Eleanor, right down to the packaging and each order is individually prepared and packaged to order. Our delivery times might not be quite as speedy as some larger companies but we promise our beautiful, quirky and British made designs are worth it!
