Produced for the Leicester Open Exhibition, 2015; this illustration takes a wry look at middle-aged men passing the time in a local hostelry. The scene is set inside the Black Horse in Leicester — a pub chosen for its lovely, untouched interior. All the characters featured are fictional. The design was created using four special colours: black, brown, yellow and cyan. All plates were drawn separately in ink and pencil, then overlaid to give the impression of having been screen printed.
