Snowflake’s Progress is the first solo exhibition from multi-award winning cartoonist and illustrator Ben Jennings. The project is a contemporary adaptation of William Hogarth’s famous 18th-century work, A Rake’s Progress, and follows a recurring character over a series of 8 artworks that offer snapshots of British life set over the past 14 years of Tory rule.

Unlike Hogarth’s protagonist, who inherits great wealth and squanders it all on an extravagant lifestyle that ultimately leads to his downfall, our millennial character - ‘Snowflake’ - attempts more modest pursuits after inheriting the chaos and insecurity of the past decade-or-so.

Also on display will be a selection of Ben’s editorial work from over this same time period, comprising of cartoons from his day job as political cartoonist for The Guardian and The i Newspaper.
