Oor ain culture
Culture is one of the main things that define a country. It makes one place on a map more than simply in a different location to another place on a map. Scotland is no exception to this. From our tartans and traditions, to our writing, music, languages and so much more, the culture that has come to define Scotland has become known around the world.
Cringe no more
In the centuries since the birth of the union in 1707, Scots have been gradually all been taught to dislike, dismiss, or even flat out deny our culture. Known as the Scottish Cringe, this in-built censor manifests in all sorts of ways, often near words like 'twee' and 'parochial'. Bringing a focus and sense of worth to Scottish culture is one of the main aims of Indy Prints.
About this piece
"A Man's A Man For A That" is one of Rabbie Burns' most famous songs. Expressing egalitarian ideas for society, it is as relevant today as when it was written in 1795.
When it comes to the Bard, there is one very famous portrait, painted by Alexander Nasmyth. I've drawn it in a modern, geometric style with a striking extra colour to give it a clean, new appearance.
