Work hits London before international tour

My collage, Travel By Life Raft, is currently on show at The World Illustration Awards at Somerset House in London.

It is open to the public until June 20 and, from there, the artwork will go on a UK and international tour for the next year and will be seen by an estimated 50,000 people.

Travel By Life Raft was created to highlight the plight of refugees drowning in the Mediterranean, using a pastiche of a Tom Purvis LNER poster of the 1930s.

BBC Radio recently interviewed me about my life, and I talked about why injustice is a common theme in my artworks. You can listen to the broadcast here.
