Serge (one half of Book Club), has been selected as a finalist in the National Youth Self Portrait Prize for his work, I, Goghbot. Submitted under the pseudonym Reges Lobud, the work is now hanging in the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra until September 12. It is well worth checking out in the flesh/frame. It stands out even in a gallery full of great portraits and as if this nod from the art community wasn't enough, my mum even said Serge looked handsome, bloody but handsome. Congratulations Serge/Reges.
