Ashley here is a heroine inspired by some of the incredible women from archaeological history. She lives her adventurous life by the watchwords ‘Explore! Protect! Save!’ which I’ve tried to capture in the comic strip.
As the Aegean gallery, full of Sir Arthur Evans’ wonderful discoveries, has long been one of my favourite corners of the museum, I enjoyed drawing Ashley examining some approximation of a Minoan jug here too.
The event is on Friday 29th January from 7pm. You can find out more about the evening, which promises a host of performances, talks, workshops and more, and purchase your tickets here. Perhaps I’ll see you there!
