1-12. humanitarian


About the illustration
The link from the entry ‘humanitarian’ and my illustration is that there are people from many races, religion and culture who need human welfare, and not only those from third world countries.

My illustration is of a whirlwind of people. The different races are to represent the different people from all walks of life involved in human welfare, and the spiraling of the people is actually to give an impression of the people being in a circle to represent that it’s a global mission, and that the number of people involved are many although in my illustration, the impression given is ‘endless’. I was very tempted to draw the Earth under the swirl of people D:

I suppose the stereotype for this entry would be linking hands of different races surrounding the Earth? :D

    a;’kdslfc CUTE!!!!

    It looks like they’re all spiraling happily into a vortex of dubious origins sia!! XDDD

    it would be cuter (to me) if they were shooting special powers defined by their races. or sthg

    I am conducting a community choir in Hope AR. and performing a program of folk music from various cultures. Could I have permission to use the beautiful illustration above as a program cover as it catches the spirit of my program? Would be so happy to give the artist full credit.

    We have been working on these for 20 months now, and projected opening is at least another 6 months (???) away.

    We will pay you for your artwork, eventually, but not right away.
    Also, because you are obviously a humanitarian as well, we would like you to join our team. We cannot pay you for your work now, but we will give you an EQUAL profit-sharing partnership, if you are willing to put in at least 20 hours worth of work per week.
    Within a year or two you should be a millionaire from these websites. Let me know if you would like to investigate? But if you are not interested in becoming a working partner with us, please at least send me your contact info so that when we are ready to start paying for pictures used, etc. we can have your info on file.

    Hi there,
    I liked your picture at first sight. It´s simple and brillant – and that´s art.

    But watching further – I´m German and a bit fuzzy about it – the man with the black trousers and the beige shirt looks a bit like… sorry to say… like Hitler. Therefore I´m a bit taken aback by it.

    Simply change the colour of the shirt and give him a smile… and soon he will look much more “unlike Hitler”.

    Thanks a lot— I really love ypur picture… but as a respectful and considering person…

    Best wishes

      Hello Stef,

      Thank you.

      When you said ‘the man with the black trousers and beige shirt’, are you referring to the 2nd largest figure from the front? (Because I don’t have any other character in black trousers.)

      If yes, that is actually, a Malay man.(I’m a Malay girl.) What you see as a moustache (which I’m assuming you think is), is the character’s mouth. The type of brush I used just made the mouth look like a moustache. Eep.

      I’m really sorry if the illustration offended you in any way. I’m definitely not a fan of Hitler, and I’m absolutely against war and discrimination.

      Thank you for pointing it out though. Although I would love to edit the illustration, I’ve lost all of my working files due to my hard disk crashing a few months after the illustrations on this website was made. I’ll take your opinions into consideration should I make illustrations of a similar nature (:

      Best regards,
