The Disability Diaries


Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
"The piece is about what it's like to be disabled – 4 disabled people kept diaries for a month. Shows what difficulties they face that we don't really think about...its really interesting and thought provoking. I've just started reading copy as this just came up but they talk a lot about access, of course, so many place are difficult or impossible." – Briefing from Sarah Habershon, Art Director.

How was the illustration used:
In the newspaper, online article

How did you make this work:
I was only given 24 hours to turn this one around from concept to sending the artwork. I thought it was important to simplify the idea down to it's bare bones and used train conventions as a metaphor for how the disabled authors feel.
