One and Other

Recent MA Children's Book Illustration graduate Maria Stuart was selected for Anthony Gormley's fourth plinth project One And Other in Trafalgar Square on Sunday 16th August.
You can see more details of the plinth project as well as live coverage of the plinth via the title link which shows Maria's time on the plinth. As she says in her profile:

I'm not a performance artist so I haven't been able to meet the demands for my hour to be interesting to watch or 'entertaining' (quite a lot of pressure around that one). But I knew from the start that I would be drawing while I was up there just wasn't sure why or what to do. As a children's book illustrator it finally dawned on me that obviously I should create an illustrated book of the journey to the plinth culiminating with images that I have made during the hour I'm there.
