Oor Shire, Your Shire, Aberdeenshire

Clare’s design depicts the city of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire through a collage of individual illustrations. From unspoilt beaches to rugged mountainous terrain, the bustling city to the remote uplands. Local Industry, wildlife and history all feature in this unique canvas of Oor Wullie. His bucket is the sea and coastal areas, his dungarees contain the land, mountains, architecture and wildlife and his shirt the sky. Aberdeenshire is one of the most beautiful and vast areas of Scotland and this artwork is dedicated to the difference that only a few miles can make.
