Landscape Peace Drawing 1

A need for peace in our world.

Given the turmoil our country is in, and for that matter the world, I would like to provide a platform for rejuvenation in the only way I can: an awareness of the need for peace through a series of graphics: “Peace drawings”.

In the past, the peace sign was originally designed as a symbol for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament by Gerald Holtom in 1958. It has become a universal symbol for peace, and now we have a nuclear crisis between America and North Korea.

My creations are simply springboards for creating awareness. Hopefully, it will spread and supply a platform to help people think about what is happening in our world and to motivate change in government opinion and direction. People in democratic countries should have the power to stop violence and corrupt policies and decisions that government make, otherwise, we are simply not living in a democracy.

People in autocratic countries have in the past affected change for the good through their voice and commitment. If enough people choose peace above everything else in their everyday living, then surely it has the potential to become our norm.

The graphic that I have created incorporates the peace symbol, it’s part of the landscape /skyscape. It is there and it will stay there. I am going to create a series of these Peace drawings and share them as soon as I have completed each one.

Traditionally, for Christian followers, this time of the year is a celebration of the message of goodwill to all mankind and peace on earth. Let’s not discard that, but add to it, irrespective of our religious belief, let this be a time of peace everywhere. Let peace be our objective for every day, let us wake up and go to sleep with peace in our minds and hearts.

The Free state landscape peace drawing 1graphic has been created in adobe illustrator. I have predetermined the placement and size of the peace symbol over the series of peace drawing series and it is my intention to incorporate it using my style of drawing and composition. I will be using different environments and landscapes to portray my message of peace.

Peace to you all today, and tomorrow.
