I'm honored to have been chosen to participate in this incredibly powerful and moving project.
For my own in-depth story about my trip to Erlangen, Germany and working with an amazing group of artists please go to my Artblog.
I'm honored to have eleven of my pieces from this work accepted into the Society of Illustrators Exhibition and Annual this past year.

an international book and exhibition project
Between 1998 and 2007 writer Pedro Rosa Mendes and photographer Wolf Böwig reported on the West African wars.
Their work was published in leading magazines worldwide and nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in 2007.
Now, they are joining 15 storytelling artists from all over the world merging writings and photographs with drawings - stories of daily life and survival during the wars in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea Bissau and Ivory Coast.
A selected crew of international graphic storytellers will participate. The book will feature 15 stories on approximately 200 pages as a horizontal 36 cm x 28 cm format. These stories all have deep emotional importance the audience will perceive with this size.
