Comic Book Style Artworks of Sowerby Bridge

My Sowerby Bridge in comic book style images was a set of pictures created by me, that are based on photographs I had taken earlier. I created the artworks as part of a YouTube video slideshow, mainly to try and show something different to my usual. All the images can be seen below the YouTube Video and each place is named although i'm sure if you are local to Sowerby Bridge you will know where they are.

The following images are all featured in the slideshow, you can also see them on Clickasnap where they are full size, resolution and un-watermarked.
