Wenlock Pole Vaulting

Here's Wenlock, one of the London 2012 mascots having a go at pole vaulting! If you'd like to know more about Wenlock and Mandeville; their wikipedia page can be found here:

As many of you who follow me on Twitter, or who are friends with me on Facebook, will know; I am absolutely and emphatically loving the London 2012 Olympic games! I have been excited for the Olympics to arrive in my home city for a while but I could never foresee how utterly engrossed I'd become in them and the amazing, indescribable atmosphere it has bought to London. I am lucky enough to have been to the equestrian show jumping (where the GB team went on to win gold the next day), cycling track finals (where Team GB won two golds and a silver!) and the athletics in the Olympic stadium last night. It all ends tomorrow with the closing ceremony and even though I'm very excited for the Paralympic games too, I will be so sad to see this incredible event end an leave our country. 

The other side of this means I have had almost no time to myself to draw over the last two weeks, but I'm more than going to make up for it once everything quieten's down here!
