i4D - Illustrations for Development

Here is a selection of illustrations I have made for use in health and development projects and publications. I have been extensively involved in work with pictorial materials for communication over many years. On my first visit to India in 1981, (to accompany a touring exhibition of my arts graphics, organised by the British Council) I came to learn that simple images can play an important role in health and development education. Since that time, I have continued, whenever possible, to work on projects involving the production and use of graphics for communication about social and environmental issues.

Images for Unicef about Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)

Here are some of the publications produced by Unicef which use the illustrations I made. Firstly, there is a printed collection of the images. The illustrations can be removed from the book so that they can be used in a classroom or group setting. Secondly, there is a very useful Teachers' Guide, which presents many ideas and suggestions about how the images can be used. Thirdly, a presentation I was asked to create about the local production and use of illustrations for WASH activities.

Images for Medecins Sans Frontieres

Below are some illustrations, commissioned by MSF South Africa, for a flipchart about preventing mother to child transmission of the HIV virus.

Images for Oxfam about Hygiene Promotion

These illustrations were made to accompany Oxfam's WASH Visual Aids Library and some related training manuals.

Book covers for Teaching Aids at Low Cost (TALC)

These illustrations were commissioned by TALC for two very useful books - 'Onde Nao Ha Medico' ('Where There Is No Doctor') and 'Guia Comunitario de Saude Ambiental' ('A Community Guide to Environmental Health). These Portuguese editions are intended for use mainly in Mozambique.
