Liam O'Farrell paints a political cartoon illustrating the upcoming Scottish Independence vote.
Liam was asked to illustrate an article which features a series of questions put to Ruth Davidson (leader of the Scottish Conservatives and Conservative MSP for Glasgow) and Paul Wheelhouse (the Minister for Environment and Climate Change in the Scottish Parliament and Scottish National Party). Liam says "Essentially Ruth wants to remain as part of the UK and Paul is against the union. With this in mind, the client and I developed the idea of Ruth pulling the two nations together and Paul pushing them apart. We felt it important to give a balanced view and avoid any cliché hero/villain scenarios. We also had to take into account that both view themselves as proud Scots. Once we were clear on this, I added in the flags of the two sides, each wearing representative tartans and even Nessie as well!"

Helen Lang works on a community engagement programme for the City of London.
Helen was commissioned by the education and marketing department of Tower Bridge to illustrate a loose and imaginative version of the London skyline as seen from the high-level walkways at Tower Bridge. The artwork was used to engage children and parents as part of the community fair and allow them to creatively respond to the artistic rendering of the skyline. Helen says "This illustration features historic figures and details particular events in the life of the Bridge such as the time a huge rubber duck was floated down the Thames and the time a bus jumped across the bridge. The final illustration was divided up into sections and participants were invited and encouraged to colour in sections of the skyline, to add their own skyscrapers, boats, buses, trains, clouds, trees, dogs, people, aliens, monsters- whatever they like! By the end of the day they had a fully populated (and very colourful) view of the area surrounding Tower Bridge"
