Mills/Child Labour my Charcoal Work

Gas Mask girl from my series on Child Labour.

This painting represents my playground as a child, the names of the games are drawn on the ground. I had no idea as i played of the children whom had worked in the mill and the almost slave like lives they lived. I now see how lucky i was simply by being born in a different era.

Me and the Mill Once again the theme is play, myself and my best friend smiling and enjoying a sunny day in the shadow of the great mill. i used charcoal and pencil to draw this.
