created by Lizi Storey
Over the years Lizi has made illustrated journals of events like her father’s death, and of humdrum daily life. She discovered on a trip to China that making drawings of people and places was a less invasive way of recording her travels which engaged local people‘s curiosity. Drawing her travels makes each picture meaningful to her in a way that photographs never have.
