Friday Afternoon is a documentary styled animation that highlights the importance of council lead art organisations in London. After volunteering with Mencap in an art workshop I felt compelled to show through visuals the benefits these groups bring to communities, in this specific animation that community being adults with learning disabilities living in Islington.

The interviews taken out are from those who attend the workshops, as well as Jonathan, who leads the workshops. A big part of my practice is drawing on location, and so many of the illustrations in the film are influenced by the drawings I produced from observing the workshops.
