Artwork and Poster Design for Railway Children

7 Feb

EHSAAS is a national level training programme of Railway Children, an organisation which works to prevent runaway children from becoming victims of the abuse of street life. This poster (sized 2 x 3 feet) is intended to be a celebration of the work being done through Ehsaas, and a representation of a child’s journey from complete vulnerability to psychological stability and security. The training programme is designed around the 12 themes mentioned on the right of the poster.

It was challenging and stimulating to find ways of visualising many intangible messages and communicate not only to adults but also to the children the poster speaks about. All the artwork uses traditional media — pastel, colour pencil, graphite, ink — each image drawn and scanned separately and finally put together using software.
