This was near home last evening while the sun was setting. Not too happy about the sky, perhaps I’ll give it a little more work. Criticism welcome.

Planner for Teacher Plus magazine

An academic year planner for teachers I just did for the Teacher Plus magazine’s May-June 2010 issue. Not a style I have worked with much at all, but much of it was fun. The illustrations are in pen and colour pencil.

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.
