Sketches in Artists of The River Pageant Exhibition (Sept. 2013)

Josh_Knowles web_josh-batt parkIn 2010 I was asked to draw visualisations of a proposed Thames Flotilla for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The artworks provided an anchor point to help pitch and produce the subsequent event in June 2012. In the run up to the event the main sketch was also used for syndicated press around the world from The Sun to American Vogue. Versions of the image also appeared on the official website masthead, merchandise and stamps in The Isle Of Man! Now it is showing in the Artists of the River pageant show at Pump House Gallery, Battersea, alongside (amongst others) Adam Dant, Chris Orr and David Hockney!!! More details here:
