The Grand National

Being in Liverpool, renowned for Ladies Day at the Aintree races here, how could we not make a related post? Well, we don't have many 'horsey' themed art work, but this illustration has always stuck with me. It's by Neil Kelly, called 'Thorough Bread' (spelling mistake intended as a pun), a small illustration on a betting slip and was submitted to the Jerwood Drawing Prize in London 2006. Sadly it didn't win, mind you, neither would that horse if it was real. 
Still, I love the concept behind the small art work. Plus, better to put this as a post than some of the outfits that were worn to Ladies Day..
