One of my new projects is called Plight. Where I have to pick something from real life, a real ‘plight’ and tell it from that perspective. It’s about I, not being me but being an Eye. Being able to illustrate an others story. I have decided I would like to try to tell the plight of the indigenous Sami culture through my illustration. I have always being kind of interested in Sami people and culture without really noticing, but an article in a magazine of which part of the cover you can see below inspired me to find out more about them and their way of life. Apart from being a peaceful people, whose life revolves around following the migration of the Reindeer across the top of Europe in the snow, are faced with many prejudices about their culture and their way of life is threatened by dying out. I want to raise awareness of that.
