Illustrator :: Jenny Catullo
At this moment we have to consider our existence and the meaning of life. I love the words of Nelson Mandela: “Peace is not just the absence of conflict; peace is the creation of an environment where all can flourish, regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, class, caste, or any other social markers of difference.” — Jenny Catullo
Illustrator :: Paul Garland
Paul re-interpret a previously produced piece of work showing a crumbling Capitol Dome as an eraser, trying half-heartedly to eradicate a huge problem. ‘Black Lives Matter’ – ‘All Lives Matter’. “If we all treat each other as we would like to be treated, regardless of creed, colour, religion, etc and drop the attitude we would all get along perfectly!” —– Paul Garland
Illustrator :: Garth Glazier
“Freedom’s Gaze” is informally dedicated to the spirit of liberty and freedom we are struggling to achieve for all Americans. This illustration of Lincoln seems like a celebration of our country’s determination to overcome all challenges”. — Garth Glazier
