To paraphrase jazz singer Blossom Dearie, we love London in the rain. So too, it seems, do these artists, who have captured the capital in all its sopping wet, brolly-wielding glory.

You can see the images at London Transport Museum, as part of the Prize for Illustration 2015. This year's theme is London's Places and Spaces.

Artist Viktoria Anopolska explains the connection between the weather and the Tube, expressed in her artwork Underground Unites:

Like any metropolis, London can be cool and lonely. In the cold, rainy evening the Underground unites everybody with its comfort and warmth.

We’re delighted to be media partner to London Transport Museum and will be bringing you snapshots and stories behind the illustrations throughout the exhibition’s run.

The Prize for Illustration 2015: London Places and Spaces exhibition is at London Transport Museum, Covent Garden, until 6 September 2015. Entry to the museum costs £16 or £13.50 for concessions and allows unlimited daytime access to all exhibitions and events for 12 months from date of purchase. Children go free.
