We’re particularly enjoying Hattie Stewart’s Mean Girls makeover and Joe Wilson’s haunting depiction of a pupil-less stricken soldier for Throne of Blood.

Each will be produced in limited editions of 200, signed by the artists and sold for £40. They’ll be exhibited in the newly opened West Wing Galleries.
