City of Secrets Exhibition 2019

I’ve been a little quiet on the blog for a little while now as this fab exhibition is what I’ve been squirrelling away for the last month or so! I was so over the moon to be given a place on this group show all around some super interesting and little known facts about beloved Bristol. I had to keep it all hush hush until the night but my prompt was Alfred the Gorilla and his life was just so much fun to illustrate. Who knew his taxidermy form was stolen from Bristol Museum for 3 days as part of a student prank in the 1950s? The night was such a great atmosphere and really intriguing finding out so much about the city and all the fab artists in it! Just the biggest thank you to City of Secrets for having me and for such a beaut evening. Here’s my finished piece I illustrated for the big night and a few snaps from the evening.
