Lauren Child Poetry Illustration Prize

These illustrations were created for the Lauren Child Poetry Illustration Prize, an international competition run in partnership with the House of Illustration, the Betjeman Poetry Prize and St Pancras International. The illustrations are for poems written by Betjeman Poetry Prize finalists.

I was one of the runners up for this competition. The illustration for “Rooftops” by Savina Sidhu was my original entry to the competition and then I was asked to create further work for the exhibition at St Pancras International Station. For this I illustrated Alex Maltby’s poem “Pitinweem”.
