I completed two pictures from the Arthurian legends for Undiscovered Voices 2018, and this was the companion piece to my competition entry. I’d visualised the book travelling through the seasons and the battle of Camlann was the return to winter after the summer of Arthur’s rule.

I deliberately referenced the drawing of Excalibur in this picture. However, here Arthur is weary of his time as king and wants nothing more than to give the sword back to the earth.
