The annual Searle Award for Creativity recognises excellence in any artistic discipline and is open to all students in Cambridge School of Art. 

Ronald established this annual award to encourage creativity among Anglia Ruskin students and the bronze trophy, the ‘Flying Pen’, is based on one of his drawings. Each year a theme is chosen with particular relevance to his life and work, and this year the competition has been based on migration.

The Lost Children

I've been shortlisted for the Ronald Searle Award for Creativity 2012! Yay! 

My entry was a series of editorial illustrations called ‘The Lost Children’. Post war Britain saw more than 150,000 children in care, some as young as three shipped to a ‘better life’ in Canada, New Zealand and Australia. ‘The Lost Children’ chronicles the journey of these child migrants.

Below are three of the illustrations from the final set. You can see the full set here on my Facebook page.
