Anne Bonson-Johnson Graphic Designer and illustrator


Illustration to explain nominal aphasia - a temporary state sometimes experienced by women in menopause, caused by receptors in the brain being deprived of oestrogen. It is a mild, fluent type of aphasia where individuals have word retrieval failures and cannot express the words they want to say (particularly nouns and verbs). Anomia is a deficit of expressive language.

This playful illustration describes a situation where the woman accidentally says 'shopping chariot' when she means 'shopping trolly'.
