Rugby is the home of… rugby! The national sport of Wales and New Zealand, it is the town’s biggest export, with rugby being played in virtually every country across the globe. My Rugby cityscape includes an illustration of Webb Ellis, who supposedly invented the game whilst he was a pupil at the stunningly, beautiful Rugby School, which also features in my design.
Local hero and WWI poet, Rupert Brooke also makes an appearance in my illustration of this famous market town of the Midlands, which lies on the banks of the River Avon and the Oxford Canal. With such a rich, cultural heritage, Rugby truly punches above its weight for a small market town and is one that I still hope to visit.
