Organiser: illustration Rally & Myself
Project: The Land of the Rising Zine
Event: Paint it! Make it! Tsunami Appeal
Illustration Rally launched the Ganbare Nippon appeal on the 13th of March 2011 in response to the horrific events in Japan on the 11th. We say "Don't give up Japan" and we will show you the strength and hope in our community.
The message behind the Zine // We're not trying to create something to remind people of the disaster, but something to remind people about the beautiful things, the rich culture, the great things about Japan, and show our support. The idea was to create a small Zine / to compile a small collection of artists' thoughts and just what they love about Japan, something a bit more personal and sincere. This Zine will be a collection of these positive messages.
At the Japanese Tsunami Appeal - Paint it! Make it! event - people were able to customise and create their own magazine.
