The Couple - Steampunk piece

This is my second piece for the ArtSHINE 'Draw Me A Calendar' competition, and the final version based on the sketches of the Victorian couple I posted last week.

I just want to say, I drew this before the new series of Doctor Who premiered, so any resemblance between the chair in the picture and certain pepper-pot shaped aliens is... well, it's not coicidental, is it? I've been a massive Whovian since I was a kid, so, yes I quite happily admit to being inspired by Terry Nation's designs.

Also, as well as winners chosen to go into ArtSHINE’s 2016 calendar, there are 2 People’s Choice awards. 

You can vote for me online by going to ArtSHINE’s facebook page and sending them a message saying your People’s Choice is either:

James Mathurin - Entry 03 -  The Couple (this one)
or

If you’re in Sydney, you can actually visit the gallery (always a good idea, plus you can get coffee and lunch) and vote for me in person.

The gallery is at:
3 Blackfriars Street
Chippendale
Sydney
2008

The Draw Me A Calendar opening night is next Saturday, the 17th October, between 6 and 8pm.
