This is the Place

I'm proud to have contributed to This is the Place, a book based upon Tony Walsh's poem of the same name, from which proceeds are donated to Forever Manchester, We Love MCR and the Greater Manchester Mayors Homelessness Fund. Walsh read his poem at a vigil following the Manchester Arena terror attack, an in doing so inspired graphic designer James Torry's idea for an artistic, illustrated and photographic accompaniment to the poem. Thus far, sales of the book have raised around £150,000 for charity and if you'd like to secure a copy, move quickly as Amazon and Waterstones' stocks are running low.

My contribution is an illustration of the line 'And so this is the place to do business, then dance', appearing in the poem's eighth stanza. See it below, view more of the book and purchase it here.
