At times I enjoy creating illustrations to raise awareness on various social, ethical, and environmental issues.
I was inspired to illustrate the piece above ‘Say No to Racism‘ after the horrific shooting in Christchurch in March 2019.
The above illustration was part of my experiment to draw in kawaii style while encouraging viewers to avoid buying rabbits during the Easter holidays.
Sadly, many families buy rabbits on a whim during Easter, due to the heavy exposure of cute bunnies in Easter promotions. Once the novelty of having a rabbit wears off, the animals are quickly abandoned by their new owners.
I only managed to complete one illustration for #mermay in 2019. I used this opportunity to also raise awareness of the environmental impact that the fishing industry has on our ocean, its ecosystem, and all creatures that live in it.
