This year’s Awareness Week takes place between March 3rd – 9th 2014.
Our campaign slogan this year is, “It’s OK to talk. Period.” Many women learn to normalise pain they experience during their period and not to talk about out loud.
We’re encouraging women and teenagers to break a taboo and talk about their periods. To find out more about the campaign and how you can get involved, visit: http://endometriosis-uk.org/news/its-ok-talk-period-37184
My part in this campaign started with a request from EndoUK after I created the MWM-2014 posters. (see later post) I was more then happy to help, as the charity is close to my heart as I have stage 4 Endometriosis.
I had designed these ladies a few years ago and have used them to raise awareness of Endometriosis. EndoUK had also used an illustration featuring them before, so it seemed only fair they where used again, but in a complete new way… by focusing on just the faces. The poster came first, then I made Facebook and twitter banner to match.
I really enjoy drawing these ladies. They always feel like they are very delicate and feminine. They are simple, use the negative space really well, as well as showing a range of different races and facial features very easily.
