Artist's Description

this is a shirt i designed for a company that i work for called SevnOne. Much like my Burma design 100% of the proceeds from this will be given away. specifically to aid in the development and funding of hospitals and orphanages within the city if Gutegue in Burundi. I know that the iconic aspect might be a little over done but i wanted to take a different approach that is very subtle. I feel like that when ever you hear something about Africa that it’s usually very depressing and sad, and im not saying that it’s not because there are issues that are very real and that cannot be ignored anymore. But i know that among everything we hear or see that we may interpret as a catastrophe there is still hope and joy and laughter and smiles among these people. This shirt is a celebration of life and growth and at the same time i wanted to address the issue that poverty doesn’t always mean a starving pot belly child, that even if you give money or food or anything and we forget to actually care and love for these people than it might all be in vein…
