A Tribe Called Red
Black Lives Matter
A Tribe Called RedThis week's heroes/activists of mine are the three folks behind A Tribe Called Red! Not only are they amazing musicians and VJ's, but they are activists and artists. They've had a huge effect on me and my work and I'm so happy I can make them something small to say thank you.
Celsea VowelI'll be creating an illustration each week to celebrate the heroes in my life who have inspired me and worked hard to challenge and change the world around us! They're activists, writers, game creators, illustrators, and more <3.
Navid KhonsariFor this week's activist profile, I chose Navid Khonsari, the fantastic Iranian game developer behind 1979 Revolution: Black Friday! It's a game that unpacks difficult perspectives behind the Iranian Revolution and is very close to my own heart (I'm an Iranian artist)!
Tanya DePassFor the third week of my portraits on activists and heroes, I drew Tanya DePass. She's the creator/leader of #INeedDiverseGames, a writer, streamer, and tireless activist!
Marjane SatrapiMy hero / activist this week is comic creator, illustrator, writer, and director Marjane Satrapi!
