George Butler, a London based illustrator with a penchant for location drawings took to the road on a six-month trek across Africa. Leaving London for Libreville in Gabon, Butler’s sketches capture the spirit of each place he encounters, making way for a visual travelogue.  His journey has taken him through Gambia, Senegal, Mali and Niger and he plans to sketch the Tuareg communities in Algeria and a voodoo festival in Togo.  His goal is “to describe Africa as I find it, something that I believe you can do honestly only with a pen and paper, which allows you to be discerning and understanding, and to record things over time. I plan to draw with pen and ink and watercolour, but with pencils in reserve.”
