History in the Making: Reflections on 2019
This work is part of a curated section of 10 artworks that look back on significant events in 2019. You can see more details here.
This artwork, by the award winning Glasgow School of Art graduate Molly Hankinson, is in Gregg’s introduction of their new Vegan Sausage Roll in January of this year, coupled with the widely publicised reaction of
television ‘personality’, Piers Morgan, whose vitriolic outburst toward the new baked good
naturally helped ensure that its launch was a complete success.
Piers Morgan's outburst on TV show Good Morning Britain (see video here) after tasting the vegan pastry sparked a heated twitter war and angry backlash from vegan lovers all over the world.
Created using a combination of hand-drawn and then digital illustration techniques, this work exists solely
as a giclée print as its original and only medium.
