The subject of this unique London greeting card is the brilliant Gothic Revival architecture of the "Big Ben" clock tower. This amazing piece of Victorian engineering must be among the most recognizable buildings in the world while at the same time no one ever seems to call it by its proper name. As any Anglophile can tell you "Big Ben" is the name given to the main bell. The tower itself in recent years was named for Queen Elizabeth II. But that hasn't stopped anyone from looking at the tower and saying, "Look kids, Big Ben, Parliament..."
This unique artwork highlights the architecture of the tower itself and its towering presence over Westminster Bridge. The image on this card was based on photos from one of my trips to London where, following a race of some sort, the bridge was open to pedestrians instead of cars. That provided a somewhat different perspective of the bridge.
The colors of this image are somewhat muted compared to my other work but I loved the vintage style it gives this "Big Ben" clock artwork.

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

The Fox Theatre is Definitely FABULOUS! THIS BLACK AND WHITE VERSION GIVES EXTRA NOSTALGIA I believe, is why I picked this 1, though I love ALL OF Mark's pics of the Fox. The theatre is Beautiful, I went to 2 - 3 concerts there years ago & So glad it didn't get torn down. Mark captured Great details in this pic!!

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
