I am Syria

As you can probably tell from past posts and projects I’ve worked on, the current refugee crisis breaks my heart. When I say refugee crisis, I should emphasise that refugees aren’t the problem. It’s the treatment of them by countries who have vast wealth and facilities *cough cough* Australia *cough*. Honestly.

I won’t go on about it right now as the purpose of this post is to share with you a recent illustration commission I created for The Guardian and UNHCR. Working for The Guardian is a bit of a dream, really. I consider them some of the last real journalists. Also, UNHCR do incredible work, so again I was humbled to work on such a meaningful piece. The illustrations help to explain the disastrous situation in Syria while reminding us that there is always the possibility of peace and a brighter future. The below is just a small section, to view the whole piece click HERE.
