The House of Illustration Competition

The House of Illustration is a new museum dedicated to, well, illustration obviously! They're running a competition based on a Victorian Parlour game where the players sketch out eight of their favourite things from a list. This image is from an overall piece in progress and it depicts my favourite book (Pride & Prejudice).

I haven't posted much recently due to a large volume of work, most of which I can't yet put up as it hasn't reached the printing press...so you'll just have to believe me- I've been busy!

Submitted by Ross Pritchard – Deadline to sign up by: 26 November 2008 – Current Signatures: 30,231

And here is an article explaining why.

The Bearded Lady

An impulse draw, possibly inspired by the circus-type tents in the Meadows at the moment!
