Sketches for Kipling in Johannesburg

My next exhibition will coincide with the Rand Club’s 125th anniversary. They’re deeply entwined in the fabric of Johannesburg and its history, both subjects I explore in my work, so the association makes sense for both of us. As part of the celebrations, they’ll be re-enacting a dinner at which Rudyard Kipling spoke:

To coincide with this, I’ll be exhibiting several works inspired by the Just So stories, which were amongst my favourite when I was a child. This sketch is for a work inspired by How The Leopard Got His Spots:

I’ll also be tackling How The Rhino Got His Skin,┬áThe Cat That Walked by Himself, The Elephant’s Child and The Butterfly That Stamped.
