Serco Prize 2014
My shortlisted entry for the Association of Illustrators Serco Prize 2014. Small Kindnesses. Displayed at the London Stories exhibition at the London Transport museum (February to April 2014).
The illustration shows the story of Charles Mackay, a crossing sweeper who worked from his patch on Fleet street for over 50 years. Little is known about him, though he was thought to be an ex-slave from Jamaica. He features in many artworks of the early 19th century, and was drawn by Hogarth and Cruickshank.
The daughter of the linen drapers opposite his patch, would bring him food and drink on cold days. When Mackay died in 1854 he left her a fortune, rumoured to be £7000.
Their story crosses the boundaries of time, class, and race. I wanted the scene to reflect this. The view is a timeless London, from Fleet street where Mackay worked, up Ludgate hill towards St Paul's cathedral.
