This week we welcome illustrator George Butler to guest post. Having graduated from Kingston University three years ago George has most recently spent seven months travelling West Africa documenting his experience, soon to be exhibited in London.
“My favourite work is discovering unusual scenarios, stories and people and then documenting them using pictures and words. It is reportage illustration really and it has meant I have drawn some incredible and some very odd subjects; plastic surgery, the oil fields of Azerbaijan, the New York Fire Department, Helmand Province in Afghanistan and most recently West Africa”
