Drawings on the Underground

'Big Draw, Big Make' at the V&A as part of 'the Big Draw 2012'

I went to the Big Draw with my mum in Autumn half term - no, it wasn't just meant for kids!
There were lots of great activities on offer incorporating different areas of drawing from cartoon artists to architectural practices.
Included are some photos of drawings made during a workshop run by the children's illustrator Petr Horacek. The activity was to create animal illustrations. Your chosen creature had to be doing some strange or was just in general something out of the ordinary.

Mohammed Sharif - a man from the dessert who we met during our drive through the Atlas Mountains. 
He asked from some aspirin because he had been walking in the mountains all day!
A very interesting man- unfortunately he was travelling in a different direction to us

Mohammed Sharif and his two bags worth of belongings.
In Britain he would be called a homeless, in Morocco he would be considered a nomad

Hand-painting in Morocco

During a recent trip to Morocco - my first ever to Africa I became slightly obsessed with taking photos of hand-painted signage and hand-painted surface design.
There is a series of work in there somewhere...
