Here are a few different versions of an illustration I began working on to submit for Ensaaf's "Decade of Disappearances" poster contest.  I missed the deadline as other things kept getting in the way, but eventually came up with something I like.  If I were to elaborate on the theme addressing the horrible human right's abuses, kidnappings, murders and general aversion to justice that Ensaaf fights against in India, I would probably add some Punjabi text.  At the same time, I like how clean it is.

Not sure how well mine would have placed, considering the front runners and winner all shared the same frenetic energy of graffiti art (see link above).  By comparison mine look a bit antiquated and soft (especially compared to this, seething with hot energy).  My take on the theme was the beauty in having a voice at all, rather than the (important) justice-seeking-aggression.  In any event, I like what I came up with and sent them to two friends who work with the organization.
