 Drawn to Africa

 

Back in 2010 illustrator George Butler traveled 21000 km overland, all the way from London to Libreville, GabonAfrica. The journey took over 7 months to complete passing through 10 countries. Whilst on this epic adventure George documented his experiences though his illustrations.

“The brief was to describe the characters, scenarios, wildernesses and wildlife as I found it.” 

Some of his “Drawn to Africa” illustrations where published in The Times newspaper, were he also got the chance to describe his journey in words. The section where George narrowly escapes a kidnap attempt in Mali is worth a read.

Finished here? Then have a look at these.
