Witchcraft in Liberia

a new project I just finished for save the children is featured on the telegraph site today. the work includes a series of illustrations and an animation about a liberian boy who was a victim of belief related abuse. a tricky project in places - i had about 2 weeks to do this, and had to avoid any direct visual references to torture, and i wasn't allowed to mention the involvement of the church, which is where most of the bad stuff actually took place - the 'lady who lived out of town' is actually a pastor. There are a couple of versions of the animation, this one features a voiceover by Dele Sosimi and is by far my favourite of the two. The animation also features clips from an interview with the boy.
