Where i work we have what they call "community service", and we 40 hours per year fo fulfill in whatever way we see fit. some stuff is organised, some stuff you can do off you own bat (say, working building hospitals in africa for 6 months), and some are simple local projects. This year's Big Draw event saw the local Dragon Hall (a youth center near Holborn) seek volunteers to help the little kids paint and make with the art. i raised my hand, along with a couple of others, to run a 'graffiti' table. it wasn't any thing flash, just some rolls of paper, poster paints, various brushes and some books on the topic. the little chaps there loved it. after they looked at some nice wall art in the books, we set about sketching their initials and comic heroes. it was only two hours, but it was fun and the kids got to take their art home, they seemed pretty happy. i didn't get a shot of francis' finished hulk, so i've messed around with that one.
