We are thrilled that Melvyn Evans’s fantastic artwork ‘Thames People and Tides’ won the silver award in The London Transport SERCO prize for Illustration competition. From hundreds of entries, Melvyn’s artwork was awarded the silver prize.
The theme of this year’s competition was the River Thames, entries had to feature the river as a central feature of London and London life. The brief was to create an artwork that was colourful and positively portrayed the river as an exciting and varied place for Londoners and visitors alike, which Melvyn’s artwork did wonderfully. Melvyn’s illustration will be used across Transport For London’s upcoming advertising campaigns. Melvyn Evans is represented by New Division
