My largest originals!
After an exhibition at Buutvrij, my 6 largest illustrations are back home and now for sale in my webshop! They are all framed in oak wood or black metal.
Let me know if you have any question or when you would like to see them in real life.
World Animal Protection Originals!
The 14 illustrations I made for the G20 World Animal Protection campaign are now online in my webshop! I donate the full payment of every sold original (excluding VAT and shipping-costs) to World Animal Protection. Later in November there will be 3 more originals added to the webshop. The originals are illustrated with black ballpoint pencils and colored pencils, on 300 grams, uncoated, off white Munken paper.
World Animal Protection
I have always felt a lot of equality with all animals and I never understood why they would be treated so much different than humans. This became an important inspiration for my illustrations. During my study at the art academy I started to investigate this topic, mainly because I found out not everyone feels the same about animals rights.
For years, since 2011 when I tried my first ‘protest project’, I have been trying to make a difference in animal suffering by spreading little stories about how we are all one; my love for animals, nature and plant-based food. When I see animals suffering, I again become motivated to start a protest project, by visually expressing my activism. Many times I‘ve written in my sketchbook: “PROTEST PROJECT, and now for real.” But it never really happened. Until February, when World Animal Protection
contacted me after seeing my message about this struggle on Instagram. That’s where our collaboration started, I finally found an opportunity to help with the great work they already are doing.
‘From the seas to the deserts, wild animals face the ongoing threat of cruelty and abuse. Bears are captured and forced to fight dogs. Dolphins get trapped in discarded fishing gear. Wild animals are traded as exotic pets. But long-lasting, genuine change is possible, so we move governments and communities worldwide to protect wild animals to keep wild animals in the wild, where they belong.’
Shinsegae Summer campaign
For the first time Puuvilla (which means cotton flower in Finnish) and his friends are celebrating Summer in the Shinsegae pool!
It was again such an inspiring campaign to illustrate, for the whole creation process video you can go to my instagram.
