Vermillion ink, depicting the ferry operated to and from the island of Cara, Scotland, by McBrayne’s.

‘McBrayne’s Ferry’ was cut by Flanagan while he was sitting in the fo’c’sle of a small ferry in the west of Scotland. He had travelled up in a van from London with friends (‘riding shotgun’ as he puts it), taking furniture and tiles to their house on the island of Cara, off the coast of Argyll. The tractor was picked up at one of the ferry’s ports of call. (source: The Tate)
