    As always, folks, sincere thanks from me and Si to everyone who read, spread the word and took part in this challenge.

    And once again, we were blown away by the variations of art but incredible quality of the pieces submitted. I’m very, very lucky to see such great pieces illustrating the stories I write for you.

    Si's left the final choice to me, and it's this piece by @mojokingbee, now a two-time winner. The art hit every beat of the story, with the setup and reveal absolutely perfect. And the art was, simply, seriously nice.

    Special mention for @Oxbrow’s spot illustration – I loved it, and as I did @SebFowler’s art.

    To be honest, though, I’d probably have gone for @Sobreiro’s piece if he hadn’t got the flag wrong... both Si and me may be British, Felipe, but the subject of the story wasn’t...

    Every one of the art pieces put up deserve applause, folks. Thanks so much for taking part.

    So, @mojokingbee - I need a new writing challenge for the next art challenge.

    A four word title and a word to use in the story itself. Let me have ’em.

    And everyone else – who can stop the @Mojokingbee? The new challenge goes up around noon tomorrow.

    @Budgie: there was no mention of a country or in the story, so I'm not sure if it's fair to say Sobreiro got the flag wrong.

    Still, I kept looking at Mojokingbee's entry over and over and thought he'd be the winner.

    I almost did MegaPalin instead of MegaThatcher.

    @dnewling - I think the seal in the heavy carpet and the curved walls were the clues there. BUT, to be fair, I think she would more likely be dreaming of going to the bar than the pub, as she was American.

    Either way, great entries everyone and great 200 worder @budgie. Wish I could draw, but instead I can only come to bask in your collective glow.
