To mark the centenary of the start of World War One, The Royal Mint asked me to illustrate and design a worksheet that would show children how medals are made. I took photos of the medal making process, illustrated the various stages in a comic-strip format and added the text.

Working with Frank is an absolute pleasure. I was looking for a local artist who would be able to illustrate a fact sheet and create a cartoon to accompany our new First World War exhibition, and Frank was recommended to us. They are relaxed, friendly and obliging yet very professional. It was great to see their enthusiasm in taking on a new challenge, and Frank tackled the task of condensing a 50-stage process for medal manufacture into just eight boxes with clarity and ease, inputting their own creativity to produce an exceptional result from a basic brief. Their Art Nouveau inspired design for the fact sheet was just beautiful. Dialogue with Frank is very easy and they address even the tiniest of tweaks with care and intuition. I hope that we will work together again.
