Before director writer/director John McKay and director of photography Tim Palmer were born, Grace Coddington modelled for UK Vogue and GPP drew her for a cover.
In May 2011 John made a film, ’We’ll Take Manhattan‘ about David Bailey and Jean Shrimpton.
Before they started filming, John said to Tim, “Can you ask your mum if we can use her drawings on the set?” (Mum is in intray next to ashtray).
Bailey is played by Aneurin Barnard, Shrimp is Karen Gillan.
