Power to the People

Our last drawing assignment was to make a zine – an 8 page booklet out of one sheet of paper – to describe the Egyptian Revolution. I was really interested in the role of technology in bringing what was going on in Egypt to global attention, so I took screenshots of news clips on Youtube and drew them using walnut ink. Each set of images is a juxtaposition of different aspects of the revolution.

Zine unfolded

Hosni Mubarak vs. Protestors in Tahrir Square

Police vs. Protestors

White male reporter vs. Muslim female reporter

Western leader (Barack Obama) vs. Arab leader (Ali Khameini)
