Welcome to Drawing Democracy! I'm Robin Sukatorn, a UK-based illustrator, and over the past year I've been scouting out, observing and drawing as many scenes of democracy in action as I can find- from local rallies, hustings and city council meetings in Manchester to the Brexit hearing at the Supreme Court and historic debates and votes at the Scottish Parliament and the House of Commons.
In these times when politics saturates our news and fills our screens, and questions of democracy, representation, inclusion and identity are particularly intense and contested, I hope to offer a slightly different and novel perspective on our democracy, through witnessing and drawing it in action, live on the scene.
I'll be sharing my drawings and my experiences through regular posts here, and posts across social media- just look up 'Drawing Democracy' on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and follow for updates. I hope you enjoy!
