I know you don’t normally do this but I’m a young Dublin based artist and was hoping that you could promote my new venture into illustration. It came from a love of all pawed and non-pawed creatures. A nice gift for the animal lover in your life. They are vector images drawn on a graphics pad using Adobe Illustrator and printed on high quality paper. I would like to offer a free illustration to one of your readers.

The winner is Claire: “I got my lad 11 years ago and have been without him for 3 now. After a good friend and my Granny passed away in the one week, my mam decided it would be a real comfort and I was elated that the petitions I had left around my gaf as a kid, pleading for one had come to fruition. It was the only thing I ever really wanted as a kid, and the one thing I was proud to introduce and say was all mine. He was the most loyal,placid,and compassionate fella. He was the one person that was always there regardless, sharing garlic cheese chips together at 4 in the morning,or just licking my face when I wasn’t myself. He was my best pal and carrying him in my arms lifeless and limp with his big brown eyes just about hanging in there, knowing he wasn’t coming home, was heartbreaking. He gets a mention in my house daily because he was so integral and such a character. One of these would look lovely in our kitchen for Buddy :)”

Better known for his black and white images of the Normandy landings and the Spanish Civil War, Capa also worked with colour film from 1941 to his untimely death in 1954, recording – among other things – intimate portraits of artists, writers and actors in the 40s and 50s.
