This special portrait was typed on a 1971 Tippa Typewriter which James discovered at a local charity shop in Braintree, Essex. A print of this portrait has been posted to Mr. Hank’s Playtone Productions company. James anticipates to hear from Mr. Hank’s in the near future!
The drawing was typed on A4 document paper back in 2016 following recent success with the creation of Steam Tug Brent; a charity commission for the Steam Tug Brent Trust of Maldon, Essex.
