We all know of war, whether via the media, someone you know lives in it, a soldier fighting for your country or you yourself was/is a victim. I have never experience but I have seen enough in the news to understand what it is like and what effects it will have on a person life, it is something any individual would want to live there life through, always looking over your shoulders, sleepless nights. War is not a new trend in the world, history speaks of many wars, deadly, small, those that might have shook the earth to the core and more to come in the future (I am sure you have seen the signs).
Some time ago Talenthouse hosted a creative invite along with WarChild and O2 to create an artwork to inspire others to help in the online campaign of looking out for children affected by the existence of war.
“O2 and War Child are inviting artists from around the world to create visual artwork that captures the campaign line ‘#WearItForWarChild’. Your visuals simply have to capture the imaginations of people and inspire them to take part in the online campaign #WearItForWarChild – they should be positive, uplifting and encourage people to take part in a great and worthy cause.”
The artwork you see above this, was my entry, though it didn’t get picked, I am grateful for being a part of this campaign, I had fun doing this pieces. As for a name for it, I have not given it one, I am bit rusty on giving my art a name, (Sometimes I wonder if I do have a child, if it will be same difficultly of finding a name).
If I should name it right now, I called it “Alone in war”, A fitting name?
I believe that if everyone lend a helping hand every now and again, the world would so much better off than it is right now but everything takes time, we can only hope and do what we can until we get there.
before I go rememebr this, Patience is flexible, calmness solves problems, Love defeats hate, a smile turns a gray day colorful
