Home and Away

LGBT Londoners

Aliyahgator's series of biro and coloured pencil portraits of LGBT people who currently call London their home.

The title is "Home and Away" because this phrase means "gay" in cockney rhyming slang, but also because as well as being their home, London is also an away place for many LGBT people, who may have grown up in other UK cities or come to live in London from abroad.

The biro drawings are made from photographic snapshots, and then coloured with coloured pencils. The main influence for this style of drawing comes from Ukiyoe, meaning in Japanese "pictures of floating world".
