badge ideas

Trying to get together some imagery for badges!
The first set just shows the entire images from 'statues of europe', which i think are a bit small and not so interesting.  The second set, shows how ive cropped in on certain areas of each image which is a bit more interesting! 
They would be cropped in a bit more because the circle shown is the outside circle, not the inner one.
what do people think?

Birds, Boats and Buildings...

Finshed! But i have a question...because there are 2 colours, does that make it 2 editions? or is it 1 edition?! 
Really happy with how these have come out, some are better than others because of the nature of printing onto both sides of a piece of paper!

Work in progress...Birds, Boats and Buildings.

Using a folding technique called a 'square flexagon' I'm making a mini book, silk screen - 2 colours.  The images have to be cut in half and then joined up again in order for the fold to work - fingers crossed it does work!

Row of Houses....2nd edition

This book has been going on for ages and after thinking it wasn't going to work, the first attempt sold really well in Bristol so this is the new improved 'row of houses' accordion book...3 colour silk screen on somerset paper.
