Sisterhood as a Blanket


Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
I created this illustration to emphasise the role of sisterhood in helping the victims of domestic violence.

How was the illustration used:
It was exhibited in an event for fundraising and raising awareness for victims of domestic violence in London on the 21st of July, 2019. I donated it to the Women’s Aid Charity.

How did you make this work:
I imagined sisterhood as a blanket to protect and warm-up victims of domestic violence. I used the lotus flower pattern for the blanket to show growth can happen in pain, just like the lotus flower which starts to grow in the dirty and muddy water. This illustration was created in the Procreate app on the iPad Pro.
