Scenes from Truck Life

Interpretations of an overland trip across Africa

Oranges are not the only fruit

Clare explains that she drew this picture of her sister Rosey so their parents could see how much she enjoyed the trip. It shows Rosey dancing with a Dutch traveller from another truck at Chitimba Beach. Rosey adds some further information about the subject: 'He used to be in the Dutch army until they said he wasn't allowed any more for shouting too much. When he had finished dancing with me, he took off his orange dress and went swimming.'

Marching on

Darren, who signs all his art with the word 'Doom', records a sun-hatted Iris triumphing over the ants that repeatedly invaded her tent. Note the symbolic use of one giant ant to represent all ants.
