Ashaninka – a call to action

DEBONGNIE_ASHANINKA

Lately, I took part to this call to action in favor of the Ashaninka peoples. Edmond Baudouin decided to help them fight a dam project that could drown their land by collecting drawings and somehow raising awareness about their desperate situation. He intends to create a blog with all the images collected, and maybe a book too. So, if you are a creative person, do not hesitate, pull something out and send it to him. It’ll be a nice collection of images and it is all for a good cause.

The Association of Illustrators, in partnership with London Transport Museum, is now welcoming submissions for the Serco Prize for Illustration 2014.

The deadline for entries is Sunday 3 November 2013.

This year the theme is London Stories and entrants are asked to capture a well-known or little known narrative in a single image; all stories, current or historical, real or fictional are welcome. Stories could be those seen in a film or play, heard in poetry or music, read in literature or an urban myth.

This is an exciting challenge for artists to depict a colourful, inspiring and vibrant, multi-layered London. The competition is open to illustrators and students throughout the world, and for the first time also for illustrators working in animation as there will be the option to display animations during the exhibition.

The top 50 entries to impress the panel of judges are displayed at the famous London Transport Museum and have a chance of winning the top prize of £2000.

To Die For – An Illustrated Pin-up Calendar

coverv2_red1

To Die For – A Pin-Up Calendar celebrating some of the greatest women in history as they pose from beyond the grave.

My idea was to take the template of the Pin-up calendar – a collection of women objectified for their looks and sexuality, and flip it – featuring instead, women who were remembered for their acts, achievements, and courage (in addition to their beauty). Some of the featured Pin Ups are: Marie Antoinette, Zelda Fitzgerald, Emilia Earhart, Freda Kahlo and Isadora Duncan.
