George was featured in his local paper, after they offered his artwork in a competition. George drew local football hero Gary Lineker and the Leicester Mercury held an online raffle to find the lucky winner. The prize was presented at George’s second local exhibition, in the Y Theatre, Leicester.
George’s first full exhibition of caricatures drew some local attention and earned him a full page in the local newspaper. Leicester Mercury ran a full page article, featuring caricatures and photos from George’s exhibition, titled “Spot On @ The Movies”. The exhibition featured a small selection of iconic movie posters, in caricature form, taken from george’s caricature collection which displys George’s passion for both movies and caricatures. The exhibition was held in LCB Depot, then the Y Theatre, as part of Leicester’s Comedy Festival.
