Weekly portraits of peace

Project
OUTCOME

Illustration Series

The stories that permeate our newsfeed have become increasingly dark lately. Abuse, discrimination, oppression, violence, and war are global problems that all countries and people face. In an effort to shine a light on some of the individuals who stand against injustice and advocate for peace, we decided to create a series of digital stamps featuring portraits of these heroes, one for each sovereign nation.

Process

The process begins by researching each countrys history, the person, and the regional artistic styles, schools, and movements found there. We then incorporate the artistic references, techniques, and mediums into the likeness of the chosen peace advocate. So why stamps? Stamps have a long history of commemorating important people and events. Stamps are collectible and shareable. Perhaps most importantly, stamps represent a vehicle of correspondence and dialogue, initiating the latter being the ambition and objective of the project.

One of the most satisfying things about this project is global interconnection. Peace Post affords us the opportunity to work with great artists who share ties to the region or the story of the individuals they are depicting. ”
