The Working Proof: Owen Gatley - The Slaying of the Beast

Owen Gatley's print for The Working Proof makes me nostalgic for my childhood - dreaming about fairy tales, dragons and princesses...Owen's The Slaying of the Beast print was influenced by his childhood obsession with King Arthur and The Knights of the Round Table. Owen decided to form his own brotherhood of knights called 'The Order of Succor' ('Succor' meaning 'to come to someone's aid') and produced five pencil drawings depicting each knight of the Order. This piece shows Sir Digbeth, who won his knighthood by slaying the vicious dragon, Shirog.

15% of each print sold will be donated to the Jane Goodall Institute. Read our interview with Owen here, and buy the print here.
