Based on many interviews, and hundreds of reference photos, Kugler's beautifully observed drawings of his interviewees bring to life their location -  a room, a camp, on the road. His reporting of their stories is peppered with snatches of conversation and images of the objects that have become such a significant part of their lives. Kugler's intense graphic reportage drawings have been commissioned by Medecins Sans Frontieres and published in The Guardian, Port, Le Monde Diplomatique and many other publications. A portfolio, 'Waiting State', published in Harpers, portraying Syrians Kugler met in Iraqi Kurdistan, was the overall winner of the Association of Illustrators World Illustration Awards in 2015. Drawings from Escaping Wars and Waves have been exhibited at Somerset House in London and the Fumetto International Comix Festival in Lucerne, Switzerland, as well as at the Helsinki Comics Festival and, most recently, at the Rich Mix Gallery in London.
