Illustrators In Support of Gay Rights in Russia

jump-higher

Illustration by Judy Kaufmman

“There is a lot of controversy regarding the next Olympic Winter Games, due to take place in Sochi, Russia, especially with Russian laws regarding homosexuality.

At Anna Goodson Illustration Agency, we believe that Art Speaks Louder Than Words and we wanted to make a statement and show the world that our agency and illustrators don’t support discrimination or violence of any kind, regardless of religion, race or sexual orientation.” – Anna Goodson

    The ideas are nice, I can not disagree. But we do not have such discrimination. Also Russia is no longer part of Soviet Union (which is actually extinct) so the piece with the hammer is shame on your education

    Hello,
    I’m the illustrator behind the third illustration. I know that hammer is no longer used the Russia, but I wanted to illustrate a retrograde law with a symbolic which brings back russia. No offense…
