Win an original illustration drawn by an acclaimed artist

The gallery at Doncaster’s The Point has been transformed into a giant comic strip in their latest exhibition: Scribble, Doodle and Draw. The exhibition has now been extended until August 2  so even more visitors can see the work and get involved.

You could win an original illustration drawn by an acclaimed illustration artist in a brand-new competition.

To celebrate, darts (Doncaster Community Arts) are giving four lucky winners a framed print by illustration artist Tor Freeman, who received the prestigious Maurice Sendak Fellowship for her work.

To be in with a chance of winning, darts would like you to create a 2D image (no bigger than A3) inspired by the exhibition, using any materials you like.
