This paper offers a consideration in the form of a case study of some issues raised by the collaboration between the artist Jill Journeaux and the illustrator John Burns. In 2010 Journeaux and Burns worked together to produce a short digital animation entitled Red Line Glowing. This animation was the synthesis of a series of drawings and collages through which Journeaux explored her responses to treatment for cancer, and her attempts to visualize health and recovery whilst undergoing that treatment. The drawings and animation are considered in relation to Journeaux’s ongoing fine art practice and other initiatives underway in the UK, which involve artists, clinicians and patients working in synergy
