The magazine focusing on ethically living commissions a cycling editorial illustration.
Here’s a cute story of lost and found. I created an illustration called cycle revolution over ten years ago. I think it was for a competition quite early on in my career as a full-time illustrator. Long before the days of social media, I put it up on my blog where I (and the world) would completely forget about it.
Jump to the present-day where the editorial team at Resurgence & Ecology Magazine contact me. They have found the illustration which is perfect for an article in their next magazine. We negotiated a price to re-license the image, and it finally gets its time to shine.
So it just goes to show that you should always share your work even if it doesn’t have a home at that particular time. At some point, the right moment will come along.
Driving out Cars is an article by Nicolás Eliades reporting on some leading car-free city campaigns. It features in the current November/December 2021 issue dedicated to cities and coincides with COP26.
Resurgence & Ecologist offers positive perspectives on a range of engaging topics covering ecology, social justice, philosophy, spirituality, sustainable development and the arts. Each beautifully illustrated issue contains feature articles by respected writers, news from the frontline of the environmental movement, ideas on ethical living, book reviews, recipe columns, humour, poetry and arts profiles.
The Resurgence Trust is an educational charity at the forefront of a movement for change. You can find out more about them or buy the magazine by clicking here.
