Doodles | Draw for Atena

The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

#drawforatena is in support to the 28 year old Iranian artist who was imprisoned last August and again in November for drawing this. She is currently serving a 12 year (and 9 months) sentence in Iran and I came to know of this through the latest ZenPencils cartoon titled “Right to draw” by Gavin Aung Than.

  1. Again, simply wow. I love how you put the quote at the top, so it’s the first thing you see. It works really well. And the artwork itself is spectacular. I’m not much of an artist myself, but this style is really great. I also love how you kept it simple with just black and white and thicker lines. Great job.
