Bowled Him - Postcard

An A5 postcard version of one of my most popular cricket drawings.  There are many great moments in an Ashes series and this is one of them.  The figure is based on England's Joe Root being smartly bowled.  He has misjudged a ball that has kept low.  Australia's Steve Smith watches on intently from his slip position, yet to react to the decisive dismissal.  I wanted the fielder to remain in the background, almost a spectator to this defining moment in the game so I blended his figure discreetly into the background.  It has worked well with the chaotic crash of the wickets contrasting with the intense concentration of the fielder.

Postcards are A5 size 21 cm x 14.8 cm with the title of the piece and artist contact details on the reverse.  Each postcard is supplied with its own white envelope and a sealed polypropylene bag.
