Illustration: The Gallery B&B

















This is an illustration I did of the dining room at The Gallery Bed and Breakfast in Blackpool. We stayed there in August and I have to say it was one of the nicest B&Bs we have ever stayed in. Blackpool, understandably, has a bit of a bad reputation for presenting some of Briton's worst B&Bs but we were soooo lucky to find this one. It's clean, the guys that run it are nice, warm, welcoming and best of all...they are well travelled and arty...and it's the same price (£50 a night for two peeps) as all the other B&Bs in the area! Their B&B is full of art and antiques they have collected over their years of travels. The best thing about it for me though was how inspiring the decor was there. We were there for Rebellion Punk Festival...but I was like "screw the gigs...I'm gonna stay in and do some drawings of this place"...which is what I did...saving myself lots of money and a hangover!
