Children of Haiti
I just drew this for Jonathan at Phawker.com. I started sketching while watching the news a few days ago. The number of newly orphaned children really hit me as hard as the number of casualties due to the quake. It's impossible for me to capture the horrors of what's going on in Haiti right now but I hope this will still serve as a good accompaniment to an editorial piece. I also want to give credit to AP photographer Francois Mori for a photo he took of a destroyed church that I based the church in the background on. I wanted to include a church to discredit the myth that the earthquake was due to a curse from God. I'm not religious but what god would do this, especially to his followers and places of worship.
If you would like to donate to a Haiti relief fund please see the links below.
AND everything I sell on my etsy site, I'll be donating all the profits from sales to Unicef so if you see a print you like please contact me. Also if you see anything on the blog that you would like as a print, let me know.
