These are really rough, but they're mock-ups of altered call-cards. Adjusting the text. They need a lot of work!

Call cards

Walking alongside Park West on Edgeware Road. I found a load of call cards on the floor of a telephone box. Apparently there's a Christian fanatic who routinely goes into the local telephone boxes and rips them off the wall.
Apperently there are brothels all over Park West, inbetween the flats of families, couples and professionals.
I find this mingling of lifestyles hard to get my head around.

Little experiment.... alter-egos.

A ramble and a sketch

I'm now looking more at promoting sexual and mental health for sex-workers. A girl I know helps out at a sexual-health clinic. I have to keep the whereabouts private so as not to endanger the girls who attend, but she was surprised at how normal the girls were. Sex-workers are largly stigmatised, and we forget that they are someones daughter, sister, best friend...
Research has showed me that sex-workers are often given second-rate treatment at clinics as they are often seen as second-rate citizens. Also, the fact that the clinic has to be kept a secret also says a lot on how society view these girls
I want this campaign to appeal for better services for sex-workers, and trying to reduce stigmatism by showing a softer, more vulnerable side to the public, to help people relate to them as normal girls/boys.
I hope this makes sense, I'm not the best at explaining myself!!

A rough sketch, based on a photo of a family. I think it speaks for itself...??
