A day at Dunkirk refugee camp for the graphic novel Threads.

“The worst refugee camp in the world”

Here’s some art that I’ve worked up, potentially for the Dunkirk refugee camp section of Threads. It’s historic now, in that the camp was closed down and replaced with a far better one in March of this year. It’s still good to make a record of what has been described as the worst refugee camp in the world. ¬†And given today’s horrendous media storm over a handful of child refugees arriving in the UK, it’s good to remember how many children are stuck in limbo, still waiting for asylum.

These were orginally drawn at home from memories of a brief visit to the camp in February 2016.
