Left image title: "Solidarity for New Zealand" (version 1)

The first submitted illustration entry is a personal non-commissioned illustration I created in response to the two consecutive Christchurch mosque terrorist shooting attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand, during Friday Prayer on 15 March 2019. 

Right image title: "Silent No More" (version 1)

The second submitted illustration entry is a non-commissioned illustration created to remember, honour and pay homage to the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots during June 28th to July 1st, 1969 which had the first brave freedom fighters stand up for their rights that widely considered to constitute the most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States. 

The brave people at the Stonewall Riots changed the course of LGBTQ+ rights in America forever and started a world-changing movement.

This illustration is created to help celebrate the New York City 2019 WorldPride festivities for the month of June as well as Toronto, Canada's 2019 Pride Festival June 21st to 23rd Weekend with the theme being the idea of "Freedom" with the spotlight being on the first freedom fighters of the Stonewall Riots.

In 2019, NYC Pride welcomed WorldPride as they marked the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and a half-century of LGBTQIA+ liberation.

One of these illustration Images will be posted and showcased on the Creative Quarterly Online Gallery in winter 2020.
