World Illustration Awards honour

April 23, 2018

I'm delighted to announce that I've been shortlisted in the prestigious World Illustration Awards.

 

My paper collage, Travel By Life Raft, was selected from a record 3,300 entries from 75 different countries, and will be shown at Somerset House in London in June. 

 

The work is the second in a series of three pastiches of Tom Purvis's LNER posters of the 1930s.

 

 

 

In these, bright young things are shown frolicking at the English seaside, but for my works, I have chosen to replace them with refugees.

 

In Travel By Life Raft, instead of building a sandcastle, children are seen picking through a pile of lifejackets as the lifeless body of Aylan Kurdi lies in the foreground.

 

I have also subverted the cheery text of the original posters to highlight the refugees' plight.
