I was invited to donate a piece of existing or new work for an exhibition for Crisis - a national charity that helps the homeless particularly at Christmas time. At Christmas, homeless people get three nutritious meals, somewhere warm to stay, and companionship over the festive season, all for £21.62 per person. All proceeds from the sales went towards the charity and raised enough for 80 homeless people to celebrate Christmas.

100 Cats Exhibition
Below is my entry for the 100 cats exhibition which showcased artists and illustrators' work on the theme of 100 cats. My cat was the legendary Thomas Paine who used to live and rub shoulders with London's top lawyers at the Seven Stars Pub in Holborn behind the Royal Courts of Justice and was famous for wearing a chorister's ruff.
