I was commissioned by Seachange Arts to document Danny Boyle’s ‘Pages Of The Sea’ WW1 Centenary Commemoration Event at Gorleston beach, Norfolk on the 11th November 2018.
The national art event was held across beaches all over the country, whereby people gathered to make either portraits or stencils of WW1 soldiers. These would then be washed away by the tide later that day, allowing people to say a collective goodbye.
My job was to draw the event as it unfolded over the course of three hours, I ‘live’ shared the illustrations as I completed them with the organisers for them to share on social media as the event happened. My drawing of the 2 minute silence was shared by the national event organisers themselves, bringing wider exposure to the event at Gorleston.
