Colour in London with this Londoner-sized illustration

There have been a lot of great free colouring books made available lately, but we doubt you've seen one as big as this.

Commissioned by Supersize Colouring Sheets, a project by agency Dutch Uncle in response to the current world quarantine, Lockdown Lndn is a collaboration with fellow creative agency Uncommon with illustrator Dermot Flynn.

Highlighting the daily scenarios all Londoners (if not all the British) are facing now, Dermot has brought to life an exciting mix of housebound pastimes and habits which have very easily become the norm as we navigate and adjust ourselves to this new rhythm of life.


The huge A0 colouring sheet scene celebrates the many activities and social nuances that have been revealed during lockdown and are big enough to get the whole family around. These include clapping for our NHS Heroes, home schooling with the help of Joe Wicks bootcamps, numerous Zoom pub quizzes as well as the nation’s newfound love for baking (sourdough and banana bread in particular) in the comfort of our homes.


Other cheeky details include a lady cutting up her bras, London’s famous pigeons in face masks, a poster from the Guardian’s ‘Hope is Power’ campaign and a man zorbing to the shops.

All profits from the sale of the poster will be donated to the Florence Nightingale Foundation.
