Recently I produced this illustration for Scotscare, a charity which assists London-based Scots. The brief was to depict a family having fun together, inspired by actual activities of the charity’s clients. Originally they were to be in a park, but we decided to show them indoors, acknowledging realities faced by people in Britain due to the pandemic.

The boardgame is a loose take on Cluedo, and one of those details in an illustration which can trip you up. It must look like a boardgame, but what kind? Perhaps it can’t be too specific.

It’s for the cover of Scotscare’s Annual Review 2020 publication.
