Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Illustration / Poster Advertising / 2010

Shelter’s ‘House of Cards’ exhibition consisted of the ultimate deck of cards, each card being designed by a leading artist. Before the launch, we placed empty card templates in poster locations across London. Over the course of a week, street artists and the general public filled in the blanks, leading to a series of unique artworks across the city. The posters became so sought after that some even went missing and ended up on Ebay. Those that didn’t were eventually sold off in aid of Shelter. Thank you to the Great British Public for their illustrations.
