Selina Alko, Turn The Tide Vote Blue

Selina Alko
About a year and a half ago, a group of fierce and notable women illustrators gathered to participate in the women's march as "The Pen and Ink Brigade". We marched again a year later, and today we are joining forces once more, this time to collaborate and create art which we are selling to raise money to donate to VoteRiders an organization that is working to get out the vote for the critical November midterm elections. Our goal? 
A democratic congress and senate. 
T U R N  T H E   T I D E   V O T E   B L U E ! 
To that end, we have created blue waves. You can buy the art on pins and postcards and all the proceeds will be donated to VoteRiders.

It is no wonder that award-winning writer-illustrator Selina Alko now spends her days melding words and mixed-media art to convey stories of hope and inspiration—as well as an alternative viewpoint. Growing up in Vancouver, British Columbia with a Turkish father who spoke seven languages and taught painting, and a mother who worked in the family’s century old metal recycling business, she was surrounded by the melody of words and stories from different places. The diverse world view she was privy to are evident in her books for children including: The Case for Loving; The Fight for Interracial Marriage, B is for Brooklyn and Daddy Christmas & Hanukkah Mama. Her picture book, JONI (Harper Collins), about the singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell is coming out in January 2020.

Work is 9" x 9", delivered framed

Waves will be available to purchase via auction starting on Thursday 9/27, ending on Friday10/12.
