The Human Rights Logo Design Competition

I submitted one design and have another I wanted to work on but will see how much time I have.

Info about the site:
The “Logo for Human Rights” initiative wants to create an internationally known logo for human rights! Logos win people over through their symbolic power, distinctiveness, clarity and universal applicability. The initiative was established out of conviction that a human rights logo will make a peaceful contribution towards the global spread and implementation of human rights. In order to find this logo, a global creative online competition with cash prizes and open to everyone is to be launched. The initiative has the support of renowned stakeholders, supporters and partners from all walks of life.

New "fire" artwork

This is a small pastel and colored pencil drawing that I did to try and promote natural burned areas as beautiful. Fire has an important role in the ecosystem yet so many people consider fire/fire affects as ugly. I wanted to show that life returns and there's beauty to this natural element. The sprout is similar looking to the fleur-de-lis, a french symbol for "heading in the right direction" A message about fire being restored in the ecosystem. The tree in the background looks dead but new leaves blow through the air and age throught distance/time which help depict the return of life, seasons and cycles.

Other fire artwork I have on Facebook
