Pink Project by contraomnes Pink Project by contraomnes
Me and many other artists working in the field are starting a project.

It came up in conversation that artists as visual communicators have a voice to the community and it occurred to me now, after hitting 100k views that my voice is reaching quite a bit of ears. And so much information in the world is getting lost or not being told, so if you've got a voice, you should use it.

I'm putting together I project for breast cancer awareness, not the organization, this is a personal project. I'm NOT asking anyone to donate money before you all go running away!

All artists have a voice, and art communicates and influences people. It's a sword that's still sheathed and I think it should be weaponized.

Here's the deal:
I'd like for any artist out there to create Pink artwork, since pink is the color of breast cancer awareness. It doesn't need to be fancy, it doesn't need to be conceptual, though that would be awesome, you don't need to be some amazing artist to take part either, it's open to everyone. It just needs to be pink, and let people know what it's for. And above all tell everyone you know about this! Every artist you know, tell them to do the same.

This is my contribution, it's the first of what I hope to be many. If you don't already know, the NFL sells pink football gear that the players wear to charity for breast cancer awareness, which is what the piece was about.

So far I have a list of some famous names who have agreed to do this with me. And I'm still in the process of contacting many of my 'contemporaries' to get involved in the auctioned work. Together we're going to sell our collective work and donate all, and I mean ALL of it to charity, no commission fee bullshit. We all make our money by other means.

Expect great things. I'm incredibly honored that the artists I asked have agreed and hope that all the artists I have yet to ask will honor me as well. Their work is phenomenal, seriously, twenty one gun.

There will be an official website for this soon, so look out for that. There is no deadline for this. It is ongoing, indefinitely.

Seriously, make this fucking happen. I have faith in you!

Seeing this piece instantly got me wondering how it would be if fire burned pink and bodies bled pink, it makes it seem softer and not as loud :thumbsup::) Great work. I believe I'll eventually contribute to your project, I'd like to.

Love the concept, love the picture. I like the way you use the flat almost cell shaded sections in conjunction with the more realistic gradation. This has been my desktop BG for a while. And Let me just tell you this is one of my all time fav pieces on DA! :)

Amazing drawing, and I think that what you are doing about cancer is cute.
But... how can this help people with cancer? It's not a critique, it's just a question because i don't get it.

I believe it's raising awareness, to get as many people as possible to help and/or tell people to protect themselves from it. Not every bit of help has to come in the form of money.

I just found this and it's really nice! I may just be being picky but I find most of the colours used in this piece are actually a shade of magenta... I know a lot of people seem to think light magenta is pink but I just struggle seeing it as anything other than purple considering it's half blue. xD Anyways, it's a good project!

I'm not a great artist, but loved the idea of raising awareness through art and colors. I will try to make a piece on breast cancer and maybe some other causes that should get some awareness as well. Is it too late to participate? :) (not on the collective work, I mean, but on your journey as a whole).

My niece was diagnosed with leukemia about a year or two ago and I am in full support of anybody trying to raise cancer awareness. If there's any way I can make art and be involved, I will definitely make the effort.
