To celebrate Black History Month, Illustrator Cathal Duane collaborated with Eastpak and ‘Hope Not Hate’ to create this incredible illustration on the subject of ‘Allyship’. Allyship is a lifelong process of building relationships based on trust, consistency, and accountability with marginalized individuals and/or groups of people. DUANE c/o JSR AGENCY skillfully illustrated the need for difficult conversations in order to acknowledge the reality of racism.
Cathal DUANE c/o JSR : “I recently had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with @eastpak on their campaign to celebrate Black History Month. They will be sharing the work of artists of color and allies each week. My illustration focuses on people getting out of their comfort zones and overcoming the awkward obstacles that block the constructive and valuable conversations required to help acknowledge the reality of racism.”
Cathal is an Irish illustrator based in France. His work consists of highly figurative forms, smart compositions and joyful color schemes. He is represented by JSR and has been longlisted for the AOI World Illustration Award 2020. GoSee : hopenothate.org.uk
