Uti Kulintjaku – Mental health language literacy program poster

This was a ripper of a project that I illustrated for earlier this year for NPY women’s council. I worked with designer Elliat Rich (who lives in Alice Springs) to come up with this poster in consultation with a group of ladies from NPYWC. It was translated into 2 languages – Pitantjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra – and attempts to use existing words from those languages to discuss concepts around mental illness, feelings and behaviours rather than bring in English language words. A very interesting project to draw. And the poster has apparently had a great reception.

We’re doing a second poster about child development – it’s in the pipeline.
