Pan Macmillan Great Britain in Colour Competition!

Folks, I’m really pleased to announce I have earned a runner-up prize in Pan Macmillan’s “Great Britiain in Colour” competiton with my entry of a depiction of Battersea power station. The reason I chose Battersea was initially inspired by it’s use on the cover for “Animals” an album by one of my favourite bands, Pink Floyd. Eventually this sparked research into what other uses it has had as a backdrop to the arts, despite being a heavily industrial building. This included Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, Batman The Dark Knight,  Alfred Hitchcock’s Sabotage, Richard III starring Ian McKellen and also as the Ark of Arts in Children of Men.
