I’ve been very proudly commissioned to work with Focus Sheffield and Dr Julia Davis at the University of Sheffield to create some artwork feeding into research based around online support networks for Mums of children with M.E. There is no known cause, or cure for this condition, it is difficult to define and can be incredibly difficult for sufferers and their families to manage. Find out more about Young People with M.E. here.
This great project has a much longer term view of helping families themselves to creatively express their experiences of the condition and the issues surrounding it. This will have not only a cathartic benefit for those directly involved but will also help give medical professionals a better understanding of the illness and why more support and investigation is necessary.
Here is one of the short comic strips I’ve done for the project, I will post the rest when they are more fully complete.
