The art of protest in pen and ink – in pictures

London-based reportage illustrator George Butler has travelled all over the world to war zones, refugee camps and gold mines. “I choose newsworthy situations and people with stories to tell, and then record them in pen and ink,” he says. Recently he’s been focusing on moments of protest in his home town. This month, he attended the Black Lives Matter protest in London’s Hyde Park to capture “people’s emotions as they pouted out onto the pavement” with the ambition that the drawings would be a record of this powerful time that may, he hopes, be “the beginning of a change”. He also drew scenes at demonstrations for Extinction Rebellion last year and, in 2009, at the G20 London summit. Butler says he is committed to documenting “the great issues of our generation” and helping to send “a message to those in power”. See more at georgebutler.org
