Rangeela India won! :)

Last night, my piece "Rangeela India" produced for Cox & Kings, was exhibited at the Royal Geographical and received the most votes from the public to win the blogger's challenge! The prize I win is a short break to the city of Istanbul, Turkey! :-D I'm so happy to have won as the standard of work was really high, and am proud to have exhibited alongside such talented folk! Cox & Kings are luxury holiday agent who provide escorted tours and group tours to countries across the world.  Here are some photos from the event and the amazing pieces produced by fellow illustrators and good friends Kellie Black and Emma Cowley

Inspring India-Cox & Kings











Namaste! I'm happy to reveal to you the final image I created for Cox & Kings blogger challenge! Cox & Kings are a bespoke travel company that organize specialist Escorted Tours of countries across the globe as well as luxury holidays too!

The name of this piece is 'Rangeela India', which basically translates as 'colourful/vibrant India'. I was inspired by previous trips to India and the vast amount of things I saw, smelt, ate, and heard.

The piece will now be exhibited at an event organized by Cox & Kings- 'Exploring the Mind of India' with Sir Mark Tully, taking place at the Royal Geographical Society this Wednesday evening (8th October). Tickets are still available for the event, and can be bought here:
