Asian Songbird Trade workshop for artists and illustrators
Creature Conserve and the IUCN SSC Asian Songbird Trade Specialist Group call for artists and illustrators to create one shared piece of design work about the Asian songbird crisis.
A 3-week workshop for artists to practice visualizing and communicating the illegal trade of songbirds in Southeast Asia. Using illustration, participants will develop their own visual perspectives on the theme, which will then contribute to a repeatable surface pattern which can be downloaded and printed as a sketchbook cover. When participants bring their sketchbook covers together, they will be able to repeat the pattern to further the conversation.
