Summer Project

Pretty awful drawing on my part :S But here it is anyway... I should probably explain what it is I'm doing for this Summer project! I'm looking to illustrate The Dispossessed Fund organised by The Evening Standard. It's aim is to help Londoners out of poverty. The Dispossessed Fund covers a lot of issues, ranging from the dispossessed taking shelter at Heathrow Airport, to the problem of mass pauper graves. For the past week I've been drawing the homeless. My context is to help encourage people to contribute towards The Evening Standard's plea, and also to raise awareness of the issue itself.

The issue of mass pauper graves led to an incident where a couple had their dead baby stolen by a fox due to shoddy burying. I may venture down the fox and grave route... Watch this space.
