Sir John Vanbird of the Kit-Kat Club circa 1705

This is simply a daft doodle made after I was reminded over on Twitter of the Kit-Kat Club. It was an 18th Century London club for the Whigs of the day. I have very fond memories of working as a designer on the National Portrait Gallery’s website years ago (almost 20 years in fact) while at Cogapp. I filled up the pages of my sketchbook with inky drawings of Gentlemen Whigs in Wigs.

Here’s the Kit-Kat Club on Wikipedia, if you’re interested in that kind of thing.
