Illustration for Yes Equality campaign, Irish referendum 2015

Posted:01/06/2015

​In April of this year, the #YesForLove website launched and invited Illustrators & designers to create social avatars that could be used to promote a Yes Vote in Ireland’s Marriage Equality referendum.

I created this piece and submitted it to them for inclusion. They emailed me back to say that it was an invitation only closed submission, but as they liked my piece so much they were going to bend the rules to include it.

​In May, as the campaign started to ramp up, Dublin screen printers Damn Fine Print requested submissions for artwork that they were going to print & sell to raise funds for the Yes Equality campaign. I inverted the colours to make a red heart (and to save ink) and this was printed to A2 size.
