Driving in Saudi Arabia

Beyond the Bricks


New illustration for the Reporter. The article is about women and their fight against the restrictions on women’s driving rights in Saudi Arabia. Looking ahead to a better future in which all women are allowed to drive, the girl in the illustration is saying goodbye to the past and moving on forward.

  1. I like the contrast between the lighter, aesthetically pleasing illustration with the more serious issue of woman’s rights. It lightens up the issue without it imposing too much on the reader

    1. Thank you! 🙂 That’s what I was aiming for! I have never done an illustration for a very serious topic like this before, so it was really important for me to keep it optimistic.
