Continuing our series of original art and photography inspired by subterranean London.
Tasmin Maz has put together this wonderful underground bestiary using silver pen on black paper. She shows how the London skyline is supported by a phantasmagoria of intelligent mice, monkey-like creatures, many-legged beasts, a dragon and a couple of beings who look suspiciously like Wombles. “I decided to create a fantasy scene under the London skyline with the central point being a girl trying to find her way out by following a tube train through a tunnel,” says Tasmin.
We’re still looking for further entries for the Underground Londonist competition. Draw, paint or photograph anything you like from the world beneath London. It could be a work of fiction and imagination, or an image based on reality…up to you. The best entries will be displayed in a real-world exhibition, which we’ll announce soon.
