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.
