‘We’ll have to use stick-figures!’

When the budget needs to go to the bone… stick figures come into their own.

When my client mentioned a new job involving the supervision of schools,  the budget was smaller than usual. So she came up with the novel idea of doing stick figures. Because she was laughing, I thought she was joking.

It worked quite well – even stick-people can convey a concept, emotions, and frustrating situations.

Some appear in the first three pics: the disruption of a schoolday by lots of cars full of officials arriving, with everyone rushing to ‘make nice’; the intrusion into schooltime with the teachers feeling they have to socialise with the officials while the children do no learning; the distraction during classes by the Visitors.

Other images show the various types of schools found there. Some are humbler than others, all can be well-run.

Hope you enjoy the show!
