"A Brush with Gorillas"

COMPETITION FOR A TITLE

Over a period of a week I sketched this image of a female

mountain gorilla and her youngster from a beautiful photograph

taken by up and coming photographer Oliver Nicklin. Your job was to

give it a name. The person with the winning title will be receiving a

signed limited edition print of the finished sketch as a prize. The

competition ended at midnight on 24th December 2016

with Oliver choosing "Oonagh Puglisi's" title:

 

 "NDAGUKUNDA"

(Which means "I love you" in Kinyarwanda)
