Woodism is a collaboration between Woody, a young autistic boy, and his art director dad, who has turned his touching phrases into a series of linocut designs for charity. The prints capture Woody’s unique way of seeing the world and aim to help disperse the myth that autistic people lack empathy. In a few short months, Woodism went viral. It was invited to exhibit at Top Drawer - the UK’s biggest trade show - as well as stocked in shops in the UK and abroad. Woodism has raised thousands for the charity Ambitious About Autism.
