Comedy Greats

We were relieved that we weren’t asked to agree who should feature on these stamps but thrilled to be asked to design them. Focusing on ten comedy greats, each stamp features a close up portrait of the individual(s) combined with a smaller image of them in character or performing an iconic act on the graphic stage behind them.

At least half the pythons were stamp collectors when they were growing up, so when you suddenly find yourself on a stamp, it seems to be one of the great achievements. A lifetimes ambition has been realised.
