George Butler

George Butler's picture

George Butler is reporter, illustrator and journalist, who works in pen ink and watercolor to describe the places and people he finds. These drawings are done from life, as a witness.

He has worked in Syria, Afghanistan and West Africa, but his drawings are often of unusual scenes not just conflicts: Oil rigs in the north sea, plastic surgery in Nepal, the Fire department in New York.

His drawings have been used in most UK outlets and other international publications as well in many galleries in London, now including in the V&A archive.
