Camden Council Map of Social work in Practice

This poster applies the theory of Camden's social work process to more realistic settings, by using the same figures from the previous two Camden posters and putting them into different contexts. 

And I do love a map! 

Live Graphic Recording

Some recent work for Cafcass - they are developing a new forum for families to right wrongs, make changes to current systems and encourage a more kind and healing process.

This part I drew up post event, as the client then had time to sift through the information and provide me with the main points that will be of use to them. 

I'm finding this method, although not as spontaneous, I think gives a better result for the client!

More images for Camden Council/Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust

Some recent work, continuing with the tree and rucksack imagery for Camden Council.

The cards are questions/points of departure for discussions that social workers are having with adults and children. Or as Oprah Winfrey once said said:

"Ask the right questions and the answers will always reveal themselves."

Camden Model of Social Care - A Tree of Life

Inspiring to work for such a progressive team with Tim Fisher in Camden council and in collaboration with Karen Partridge at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust (and many team members behind the scenes).

This will be printed as a giant 2A0 poster for people to see at work - when we finally get back to our offices!

Some details of the image:

Wellbeing Matters - animated drawings

The voiceover will be re-recorded but here is the finished first edit, it was a lot of fun to work on this!

Animating a story - Wellbeing in the Workplace

I've been collaborating with a small team to create a short animation. 

It's been an interesting process, and is teaching me quite a lot about how collaboration leads to more than the sum of each of our parts, and it's been quite fun too!

Here are some 'work in progress' images - to show the storyboard process,  and then the short film will follow soon.

Parents for Future

I was asked to capture the responses to an online viewing of the film 2040, drawing out the inspiration and great ideas that people responded to.

As Damon Gameau,  director of the film, has discovered on his travels - there's already so many good ideas in action 'out there', but we need to try and scale these and make them part of everyday life.

Kick The Dust - National Lottery Heritage Fund

Last month I was asked to capture a virtual live event with a cohort of young people who are working within the heritage sector. 

'Kick the Dust' is an umbrella term for several heritage projects. It's a chance for younger people to get involved in the sector, add their perspective and skills, and hopefully improve things/shake things up a bit!

We were all still locked-down at that point, but the stories of resilience and just 'keeping on going' were really inspiring. One of the positives from remote working was that suddenly young people's digital skills came to the fore, and they were now being asked for advice and could contribute even more. 

This was the full day:

These were some of the individual talks given by the young people:

Some of the questions raised by the new ways of working, plus their responses to the challenges below:

Website Illustration

This was for a local authority website, for children and youth services. There were a variety of subjects, people and places to capture and bring to life. The main aim of using illustration was to help people connect and engage with the website and hopefully use it more effectively.

This is a London borough and my brief included a specific note to honour the diversity of the people who live and work here.

These will be used as banner headings for various subjects:

And a selection of smaller illustrations to dot around the different pages:

Future Water Association - LinkedIn tips and tricks

I was asked by 'Future Water Association' to capture this discussion. The subject was how to improve your use of Linked In. I turned some drawings into a short film and added some music:

All the top tips collected here:

Digital doodles - with sound!

I've been drawing and adding some sound as that brings things to life.

This is a short riff on feedback, and then a small drawing about the questions I need to ask clients, so they get the best out of what I can offer. 

Best watched in full screen mode, with the sound turned up !

Some recently commissioned work I finished yesterday - hot off the press! 

These illustrations will be included in an online learning course for screening the hearing of newborn babies.
