Sheffield artist Pete McKee has unveiled his latest works of art - limited edition figures of This Is England stars Lol and Woody.

The project is a collaboration between Pete, Warp Films and Big Arty, the two companies that created the 2006 British drama film, which went on to be a popular mini-series and ended on Sunday.

Much of it was filmed in Sheffield.

Pete said: “Watching the This is England gang since the beginning feels like you have grown up with your best mates - Woody and Lol are like your favourite aunt and uncle. You know you can rely on them to help you out and they’ll let you kip on the sofa anytime you need to crash.

“Their love for each other is heart warming and you know they’ll be together through thick and thin. I wanted to pay homage to their love and to the time we first met them in their full youthful glory; a time when we all dared to dress to impress and felt we had the power to make a difference, a time when bands like the Specials, Clash, the Jam and Billy Bragg educated and politicised us.”

Only 500 of the 27cm special edition figures will be sold at £65. Visit www.petemckee.com
