The Clerkenwell Post

Haydn was asked by The Clerkenwell Post, a local lifestyle London magazine that celebrates Clerkenwell’s design, heritage, craft and culinary delights, to produce an editorial illustration for their up and coming magazine.

This illustration responses to the story of ‘Grub Street’, an area that was located in Clerkenwell during the 19th Century.

Within this concentration of lowly paid writers and book publishers, was a wealthy individual who was nicknamed ‘Hermit of Grub Street’; Henry Welby.

Henry was an educated and wealthy individual, who secluded himself from all public life, remaining in his room for a staggering 44 years until his death. Eating only gruel during Winter, and salads during Summer.
