The ‘Seafaring’ illustration is a celebration of maritime journeys and adventures. I think we are all naturally drawn to stories of the sea and I wanted to pay homage to South London – a beautiful part of the world.

There’s also a historical connection between ‘Seafaring’ and my Parade illustration- the East Indian Company traded across the sea between thEnglish and the Indian subcontinent, and in 1607, the Company decided to build its own ships and leased a yard on the River Thames at Deptford, a place which has inspired ‘Seafaring.’ As a result, when hung together the ‘Seafaring’ and ‘Parade’ illustrations create a strong historical narrative.
