Summer Project - God Bless You

Apologies for the awful scan :S This is a pencil drawing of one of the 3,673 people sleeping rough on the streets of London. Albeit Islington is known for being wealthy and trendy - it is also one of the most poverty stricken places in London, alongside Camden.

I am now thinking of doing a Monopoly style board game to help educate and encourage people to help London's poor. This awareness will not solve the problem but instead help people to break the vicious cycle of poverty.

Many people, when in vulnerable situations like being homeless, sleep or retreat into the fetal position. I might explore the idea of babies and produce an abstract poster with something along the lines of "You're not born homeless". This is however an idea in progress, which may or may not reach fruition.
