Safwn Gyda Llundain / We Stand With London

5 Jun

Llundain 1

Just over a week ago, I stood in Swansea’s Castle Square to draw the vigil for those murdered in Manchester. Who would have thought that we’d be holding another vigil so soon? This time we stood in torrential rain. The water poured down the page of my brown paper sketchbook which liquified the conté crayons, giving them a softer, more brush-like effect than that of dry paper.

It is so sad to attend these vigils, but we must come together in peace and kindness, otherwise the extremists will have won.

      Thank you, Sheldon. People my age lived through the IRA terrorist attacks during the 80s and 90s, it’s the younger ones who have no experience of this that I worry about. It’s bringing us together, though. They won’t win xx
