Sweat Free

February 20, 2009

A few months ago I co-started an anti-sweatshop group at my school (Webster University) along with several other students.  It seems to be picking up steam and the issue was brought up by another concerned student at the bureaucratic nightmare they like to call the “delegates agenda”.  Exciting news!  It made me think of this old animation I made for a class a while ago…

As a final project for an International Human Rights course at Webster University in St. Louis I created a human rights awareness pamphlet on Israel and the occupied territory. It provides an overview of the recent developments in this extremely complex issue as well as some pictures and artwork. The idea was to create it sort of in the style of the Amnesty International magazines… I turned it in today. Here are a few pages of it:
