Giraffe Dreaming in Niger in the Guardian

IMG_7075awebThis month has been consumed by numbers and words, but mostly numbers and refining budgets, which is not always the most comforting and carefree of ways to spend a day to a natural born creative. Since arriving here, into a new job title and a new country, more to come on that, the majority of my world has been enclosed in a less than well-lit office and concrete walls that surround my daily existence. Finding and growing friendships has been a nice reprieve.

IMG_7079aAlas, dreaming is a necessity and key part of staying sane! Here is a sketch and gouache illustration that I sent off to the Guardian’s call for aid worker art, a little over a month ago, and it was selected to be posted in their blog here!

Sans titre-1Sans titre-2

Wishing everyone a sunny and joy-filled weekend!
