I would love to have one of these prints for my two daughters' playroom. They share a bedroom so that they can share the extra room as a playroom. We moved in just over two years ago and I have still not got around to painting the playroom walls. If I won this print I would give it pride of place and do so also by painting the walls. I think it would go very well with a hue of raspberry red colour.

Beautiful! I'd love one for my boys bedroom. They've both not yet been to London, but do love telling me interesting facts about it. One being the red double deckers! Lou xx

Dee said...

I and my five year old son would like one, we are from Latvia, Baltic states and we traveled to London last April, just two of us and we enjoyed trip so much, our favorites were V&A museum of childhood, London Zoo, National history museum, markets, parks and of course London Metro and red buses, because we dont have ones here in Latvia, we have few red toy buses at home and we are big fans:) We bouth love London and will travel for more things to see and taste, have nice Christmas Jane and I love what you are doing, Aija

Sue Westcott said...

My five year old son, Seth, would love one for his room. He loves travelling on buses and one of his favourite games is lining his toys up and being a bus driver himself!

maria said...

I would like to have on of these prints because we went to London with my son last year and that was "the travel of his life"! He loved the city and wants to go there again. The print will remember us this wonderful trip.

Thanks and congratulations for your wonderful work!

Dear Jane,
I would like to win one of your wonderful bus prints. It should be a present for my little daughter to shorten the time until we will go to London next year (hopefully)

Ooh there is a lovely young man in Scotland who is obsessed with red buses and this year his grandma took him all the way to London from Inverness by coach to see the real thing. So I think six year old Logan deserves one
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

I live in London and will never leave, I love it so. I'd love this celebration of London to put on the wall of our home.I also love your work having discovered your prints on cloth kits fabric, my first ever make was a small skirt with one of your birds on it. X

Gorgeous print! We've just given our 8 month old baby our bedroom (yup, you read that right - we've been booted out of our room by a baby:-))and so the poor boy has nothing on his walls. He adores his brother's room because it's filled with so many lovely goodies and I would love to be able to give O a happy space of his own.

Because London is the best city in the world and big red London buses scream 'I'm British' and I love that. I Also love it because it shows how talented us Brits are, especially you Jane Foster!

TwinkleToes2day said...

My little boy is autistic and his main obsession is buses. So much so, that I took him to London by bus a few weeks ago, all the way from here in the NE of Scotland. It was such an exciting time for him with the trip having been planned over the past year. The pure joy on his face when he saw all the red London buses is a delight I will remember forever. Your screen print would bring back wonderful memories for him too. Thank you for the opportunity to win it. :o)

Ellyn said...

my oldest daughter (23) would love this! She's a travel-maniac and loves London. It's also very much her style!

Kath Vlcek said...

Id have it in our hallway, it looks such a lovely print @kathvbtn

Anna Maria said...

Hi Jane! First, I just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading your blog. Everything that you make is so vibrant with color! Love your screen printing, pillows and stuffed toys. You are a true inspiration to many who would love to start a business from home. I live in Canada and my son has always loved these buses so I would give it to him as a reminder that one day soon we will cross the pond to visit beautiful London!
Best Wishes and Happy Holidays,
Anna:)

I would love a print of a; "big six wheeler, scarlet painted, london transport, diesel engine, 97 horse power omnibus'. in my 'play'-room -my children already have one in their playroom1

cmooretech said...

I'm an art teacher and I know my students would love to have a piece of art by a real artist in the classroom (which is decorated in red/aqua, so it be prefect!). Your art has an achievable feel to it, that really inspires younger artists.
thanks and love everything you do!

Katya said...

This print would be a lovely gift for a friend who is planning her once-in-a-lifetime trip to London next year. That, and I'm pretty sure that's me in the top window, second from the left...................kidding!
Cheers, K

Sarah Jane said...

I would give this to a friend who is expecting! Perfect for a child's room or nursery and the family that loves to travel.

Lola Azul said...

I would love to have one because I really admire all your creations. Kisses.

Janine said...

I would love one of these for my husband and daughters. My late father in law spent many years as a bus driver but sadly died before my children were born. This would make a lovely cheerful reminder to the girls of Grandad Mike. (My husband would love it too). What another thoughtful and generous giveaway :)

Jess said...

I love your bold prints and colours! My daughter and I visited London last year and she was so excited to go on the double decker buses. She would LOVE this print for her room!

Stacie Swift said...

I would give this print to my little nephew Ted. He lives in London and LOVES to watch the buses go by (in fact, he could say 'bus' before he said 'Mum'!).

els said...

I would love one for my nephew who now lives in San Francisco but was born in London. A lovely little reminder of his English family :)

Mar said...

Hi Jane,

Your beautitul print would make a lovely gift for my daughter. This summer she was in London for the first time and she loved it. We have also been on a bus like your double decker. It would be a wonderful reminder of a perfect day in London.

Would just love it to go with our Dick Bruna stuff for the new house we are finding and moving into in the spring

halftown said...

Just because I love it and I think it would be perfect on my kid's room!

Karen said...

I love it, it's so cheery and reminds me of the daily commute I used to do in to London when I first started nursing! We live in the Dorset countryside now so I'd love to hang it over our fireplace for the whole family to enjoy (while I bore them with tales from my younger days ha ha!)

Kestrel said...

I'd love this to mark my baby daughter's first Christmas. She's four months old and so too wee to appreciate presents really, so we'd like to mark her first Christmas by giving her something she can enjoy when she's older. We have a few prints in the house and it would be lovely to start her own art collection with one of yours! I bought her one of your fabric cats before she was born.
Thank you!

buses are boss! x

I would love to win one for my living room. I am a British expat living in Holland and this would be a nice reminder of home :-) London is also where my husband proposed -- it's my favourite city!

Chilco said...

My son, Clyde (age 6) just went to London for a school trip last week and he told me there were so many double deckers in London compared to Woodstock (Oxford) where he lives.

You rock!

Hi Jane,

Just wanted to leave a comment to say that I love your illustrations.

I would LOVE to win your lovely Bus illustration. Mainly for me! but my mother is a childminder, and the some of the youger children are starting to appreciate different illustrations and designs and I think they would love this one (especially as they love singing 'The wheels on the bus'!)

Take care

Hollie

Anita said...

Hope it's not too late to leave a comment. I would LOVE to win this. After a wonderful visit to London this summer I have fond memories and think this would be great in my red and white studio.
Thanks for the opportunity.

Hi, I love that second bus print! Just got my livingroom painted so it would look fab on the white wall! Ehm... my livingroom is in the Netherlands, hope it's not a problem? Or UK only?

Kate said...

I'd love to hang this print in my little boys' bedroom. My eldest is fascinated with buses and my husband is from London originally so would love it too! xxx

tray said...

I would love to have some of your work to remind myself that some people really do get to live their dream of a creative life! I am (unexpectedly) a single mom, and a public school teacher in America, but my dream would be to own a little shop where I could sell some of my own creations and provide a place for other crafters to sell as well. For now (and maybe always) it will be a dream, but I live vicariously through artists doing beautiful and unique work such as yourself, Jane! Your work is lovely and thoughtful and deceptively simplistic. That is the genius behind your designs. Sort of like a Robert Frost poem! Thank you for sharing your art with the world!

I would like to have this print because it is lovely and I am selfish. Actually, if I had something wonderful like this in my home to share with my son and daughter, I think it would cheer us up and make us happy.

I would love one because not only is it beautiful but it would forever remind me of the morning my two year old woke me at five in the morning by shouting "ATTENTION! We goin' London!!" (We were not!) Keep up the brilliant work :)
