Vote 100 Parade

An illustration to celebrate #vote100: February 6th marked 100 years of (some) women gaining the right to vote in the UK. There was a lantern parade through the centre of Bristol to celebrate the centenary, past the University tower (lit up in suffragette colours), with purple & green trombones playing and enormous suffragette lantern puppets floating over the river of homemade signs. It was so cold I had to duck into a cafe near the end to warm up, where I got out my sketchbook and drew some of the people and signs seen on the march 💜💚vote 100 parade drawing.jpg
