Chatham Jack - A Boxing Reportage

I spent a few weeks at boxing rings and bouts around Chatham in Kent, famed for it's boxing clubs. Chatham Jack is my modern day narrative on a young boxer, aiming to take part in the 2012 Olympics. I spent time at boxing clubs sketching young fighters training, creating a large body of sketches and paintings that reflect the action and the sport. I created a finished book as the final result, below are a few examples of the sketches and paintings created.
