From Brooklyn to the Congo

September 20, 2012 BY Eric Porterfield


Sophie Blackall, a renowned illustrator – check out her recent artwork in the NYC Subway – recently returned from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (checkout her travel journal), where she got a first-hand view of children’s health with the Measles and Rubella Initiative. The week, she launched a new exhibit of her sketches from her travels, where she met and was moved by families and communities devastated by measles. The posters were designed by Sophie’s friend Sara Gillingham, another talented illustrator and designer.

I hope her images move you as much as they have inspired me! Take a look at the slideshow below and tell us which one you like the most.
