Illustration – Pencil & Help
Founded in 2013, Pencil & Help is an illustrative collaboration group that creates socially engaging designs. The group consists of Mark Oliver and Mark Long who are both passionate about using art to make a difference.
One of their projects included workshops in which patients of Sheffield Children’s Hospital created a series of images using various medias. Ten of these creations were then evolved into a collection of large scale vinyl illustrations. Not only did these designs brighten up the hospital walls they also developed into the creation of an activity book for the children.

the abduction and armament of children. Some children
were pushed into human trafficking and slavery.
