I was delighted to find that one of my stamps, featuring Winston Churchill, was chosen to be used on the set of six Guernsey Stamps commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Philatelic Independence. With Guernsey Post‘s special ‘stamps on stamps’ issue.

My Churchill Stamp Design was for the Memories of World War 2 (1945) set and was for the larger £1.50 stamp.

The artwork was produced five times larger than the finished stamp. Churchill’s face was painted with acrylic paint. The rest of the figure and background was sprayed with an airbrush using liquid acrylic paint.
