A plea for compassion

Are We Europe
Issue 6 – Homeless

For this issue of Are We Europe, the spotlight was focussed on the plight of the homeless, both visible and invisible. For the accompanying issue illustration I decided to draw inspiration from what was happening outside.

As we were moving from summer to fall, and weather was starting to become more hostile towards rough sleepers. I decided to highlight the changing seasons and the approaching cold using colour. 

Passers-by are more focused on other things, and whereas a homeless person should be a glaring presence, they somehow become barely visible and go largely unnoticed.
