Time Out Trashed

Last week I ran a 2-day illustration workshop for a group of 12-18 year olds at Acton High School with Time Out and Trashed Mag. I introduced illustration and it's relationship to journalism. The students spent some time illustrating the stories they had written about all sorts of subjects including gun crime, the rise of men's vanity and the death of bubblegum pop. It was really fun and I put emphasis on the additional ways in which images can be produced, aside from the kind of traditional drawing often taught in schools.

The articles and illustrations will form a small publication of which 100,000 copies will be distributed with a future issue of Time Out.
