This is a pic I did for FJH publishers as a music vignette and which I submitted as original artwork to this exhibition at the Illustration Cupboard: http://www.illustrationcupboard.com/exhibition_details.aspx?eId=178&ePage=0 It's called 'Celebrating Asylum' and is to raise funds for St Mary Magdalene Centre for Refugees and Asylum Seekers. This small London-based charity offers some of the capital’s most vulnerable people a safe place in which to meet and study, working with refugees from countries as far apart as Eritrea and Turkey, Albania and Congo, Kosovo and Syria. I've been involved with it for a number of years and think it does wonderful work. Artworks have been donated by Jane Ray, Axel Sheffler, Chris Riddell and many other wonderful illustrators and all the proceeds will go to helping the Centre.
