‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside’
Sketched on my train journey this morning, this sketched design owes its inspiration to John Hassall, who illustrated the famous ‘Skegness is so bracing’ British Rail poster of 1908. These scamps were drawn for an exhibition starting at the weekend at Forge2 (The Green, Culworth, Oxfordshire OX17 2AZ UK. Tel: 01295 712136 or 07736 707316), curated by Clare Eguchi. The theme of the new show is ‘The British Seaside’ and is a light-hearted look at holidaymaking in the UK.
