Question Time from Stirling.


bbcqt_nov16_russell_webIt was a stirling Question Time from Stirling, Scotland this week. (British television programme in which the public pick the brains of a panel of politicians, journalists, etc.) It’s fun to try and hastily draw the panel, and even members of the public, who only appear for a few seconds with their questions—it’s good practice. Most elusive to draw is the programme’s long serving host David Dimbleby, who either stares head bowed into his notes, or makes quick birdlike movements. I was happy with this week’s drawing, so decided to work it up to a finished piece together with a QT inspired background. Brexit, Scottish independence, Trump, and post-truth politics were the main themes taken up by a noticeably split audience, and panel.

I was commissioned to produce the above infographic for Clothesline Media, a multimedia company with storytelling at their heart. They are based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The brief was to illustrate the story behind the founding of the company. There was a lot of head scratching involved, puzzling the drawings together and weaving the text around them , but it all came together in the end.
