Yesterday I created a set of four drawings for the UN Refugee Agency to illustrate the experiences of nine year old Mahmoud, who’s story of relocation from Syria to Sweden is a truly touching one. watch the video HERE.
He fled from Syria and after living an unhappy life in Cairo, Egypt, was relocated this year with his family to Sweden. Watch the video and see how he changes from a scared, quiet little boy into a smiley, inquisitive, happy one. Follow the brilliant work of the UNHCR HERE
The brief was to produce images for a social media campaign that would help spread good news stories from the UNHCR. An inspirational subject matter, a tight turnaround and one very dynamic social media manager made this a truly rewarding and enjoyable challenge. Hopefully the images will be useful in directing people’s attention towards the UNHCR and their work.
