This design sees Birmingham through a whimsical lens – populated by different species of bears as well as a myriad people. Amidst the city’s landmark buildings the bears are engaged in various antics including driving cars, riding a hot air balloon and hiding amongst flowers. The rolling landscape is inspired by changes the artist has seen in a lifetime of train journeys to Birmingham.
