Gold Award for Neda Poster

MAY 25, 2010

On a whim I entered a poster I made of the Neda "Eyes" illustration from last summer into the Graphis Poster Annual.  The poster was originally included in a collection on the blog, 'Socialdesignzine'.  Eventually, the Iranian government censored the blog.  A year later, little is said in the press about the stifling of the opposition movement in Iran.
This illustration was created about a year ago and I wrote about it on Drawger and it quickly went viral and hundreds of Iranians offered their comments.
Yesterday I found out that the poster won a gold award from Graphis. 
It was one of the quicker pieces I've ever done; a drawing imported into photoshop and completed there.  Not many refinements just a focus on the eyes.
