Tom Crean (Terra Nova Centenary)

On this day 19th of February in 1912 at around 3.30am Tom Crean completed a 35 mile solo march to Hut Point, Antarctica, to save the lives of Edward Evans and William Lashly. Both Crean and Lashly (Who stayed to look after Evans) were awarded an Albert medal. Crean had walked for 18 hours with only a bar of chocolate and three biscuits to sustain him. An inspiring example of human endurance and perseverance. So in line with my current project i did this little impulsive sketch as a tribute. To Mr Tom Crean. (More work to come)
