Draw The Line

Shortly after Donald Trump was elected as President of the United States of America, I joined a group on Facebook called Draw The Line, set up with the aim of making comics and illustrations that provide positive actions that anyone can take when faced with a prevailing political landscape they do not like. These will be published on a website in early 2017, and in a print volume thereafter. A book about how to take action against inequality, unfairness, poverty, hate, and discrimination, no matter where or how it arises.

After the initial housekeeping and administration was complete, a list of universal, non-partisan actions was drawn up, – ranging from small and easy actions to those that take more effort, or require a little or a lot of money – distributed among the artists taking part and a deadline established to create a time frame for the project.

My action was:
If your car is only good for scrap or your phone is due for an upgrade, there are services which will take them off your hands and donate any proceeds to the charity of your choice.

After giving it a bit of thought, I decided to produce an illustration for my action, which hopefully gets across the message in a humorous way:

I'll try to update this post with more news about the project as it happens, so watch this space!
