Sebastian Little, aged eight, has been crowned the regional winner in the BIC Kids young artist award.

He is up against 13 other entrants and the overall winner will have their artwork displayed on 26 billboards throughout the UK and Ireland.

Illustrator and judge Phil Corbett said: “We’re thrilled to announce Sebastian as our regional finalist for the South West of England.

“His drawing stood out as it’s one of the few entries we had which used intricate patterns, and the way he has broken up the space is fantastic.

“He’s got a real eye for nature, as is shown by the brilliant detail used for the flowers, berries and the different insects.

“We hope the billboards with Sebastian’s artwork on, in Bristol, inspire him to keep on drawing, he certainly has a natural talent.”
