WorldPride (2012)

Digital painting on iPad with Brushes app.

WorldPride is perhaps the most recognisable international celebration of individual diversity and freedom in the Western world. This image illustrates a gay-friendly British gathering in London’s Soho on 7th July of this year. For some people this is an original ‘postcard’ from an annual pride celebration; yet for many others, especially those in places without the same freedoms as London, it is an artistic reminder that respect for the fundamental human right to be different is one of the vital elements to a better and happier society.
