There are some striking images emerging from the Occupy movements in the United States and Spain, particularly the comic and manga-inspired illustrations from Oakland, so I’d thought I’d experiment with some adaptations for the Irish-speaking community and our own struggle for equality. This is a simple first draft to see what people think, in a big old gif format. In the next while (work permitting!) I’ll sit down and come up with some artwork of my own.
The Occupy movement has several voluntary artist and graphic design collectives working on these images in several countries and they are being freely posted for internet and printing use. Where is Irish Ireland’s equivalent?
