This illustration was for a project I was invited to take part in, designed to raise funds for victims of the Haiti disaster. The concept of the project was to have participants create art carrying messages of hope to the people of Haiti. These would then be auctioned off to raise money in support of designated aid organisations.
What struck me most while watching the horrific images of the disaster on television, was the kind of courage it must take to carry on in the face of such loss. It really is unimaginable. However, I was able to use these feelings to inspire the creation of this artwork.
Unfortunately, the project didn’t get off the ground so this won’t be used. What a pity.
