Illustrators In Supporting of Gay Rights in Russia

Lately, I have been really disturbed by what’s been going on in Russia and the horrific treatment of homosexuals in that country.

There is a lot of controversy about  The Olympic Games that are to take place in Sochi, Russia, especially with the way they treat the LGBT community.

So, I was wracking my brain to try to figure out a way to make a statement and possibly a difference.

Since, Illustration is a big part of my life, I had an idea.

I sent a memo out to the gang at Anna Goodson Illustration Agency, asking them if they wanted to” make a statement” about what was going on in Russia and the reaction was an overwhelming yes.

The idea was to create an illustration about what was going on in Russia and post it on our illustrators page.

We are often asked to create images for clients but here was an opportunity for them to create something meaningful, personal and from the heart.

We believe that Art Speaks Louder Than Words and we wanted to show the world that our agency and illustrators don’t support discrimination and violence of any kind, regardless of Religion, Race or Sexual Orientation.

We hope that you will all share and post these illustrations and help make this a better and more tolerant world to live in.

Please credit the Illustrators for their generous work.
