Illustrations for BBC magazine article: Why I Bought My Daughter Heroin
Posted 6 years ago and submitted by Emma Russell | Share link:

This was a commission to make seven illustrations for the BBC news magazine article “Why I bought my daughter heroin” which documents a family’s struggle to help their daughter cope with a drug addiction. You can read it here on the BBC website.

I made one “headline” illustration for the top of the article, which was a landscape shaped image of mother and daughter, and six smaller square illustrations which were spread through the article.

I was pretty excited to see one of my illustrations on the front page of the BBC News website promoting the story on the day of release. My favourite of the pieces was the mint green and candy pink lettering illustration. And the clients were lovely to deal with which always makes a job a pleasure.
