Tomorrow afternoon the Sand Writers launch Speak Out 2019, their latest anthology of prose and poetry  about Home. Sand Writers is a writing group located on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia. The book is illustrated with art by a number of artists. Here are some of my illustrations for stories and poems in the book.

The Human-Elephant Learning Programs Foundation works to improve the welfare of working elephants in Asia. The poster was adapted from a version for Horse SA. We mammals are all the same …

Each illustrating job often involves getting a glimpse into a valuable, innovative and creative project.  Helen Palmer, creator of Self unLimited, outlined her Folkscape image and after a couple of drafts this is how it turned out.

Folkscape LR pic.jpg

To help understand the picture I asked Helen some questions:

What is Folkscape?

It’s a place – a social place and a digital place where people on Self unLimited adventures can meet, share, learn and support each other.

What’s Self unLimited?

It’s an idea and an approach for taking charge about your own experience of work. You don’t have to be self-employed to be in charge and making decisions that affect you now and in the future. It’s for people who are frustrated about work, it’s for people wondering if they need to think differently about work with a future of big changes like AI and robotics.

The people all have letters on their tops, what does that mean?

The letters on people’s tops come from Self unLimited logo. Each of these people is making their own version of being Self unLimited. The guy wearing the ‘M’ is Mike – he’s in charge of Mike unLimited – which is his own workscape – the place where he makes choices about how he wants to navigate his experience of work.

The scene is a little mysterious, as if the people have just stumbled on a special place, and off in the distance there appears to be more… what is going on?!

Off in the distance are some special places for group learning experiences. People pay to access these – so that’s why they aren’t in the free open space you see most prominent in this picture. https://www.be-selfunlimited.com/learning-options/
