About the design
on October 24, 2010
While trying to stay clear of the cliché symbols I've seen overused in this competition like silhouettes of the African continent, red t-shirts I could never personally wear (I find the colour too abrasive), ribbons (alright, I'll excuse this one) I know I stumbled into a cliché myself, but I feel like it is direct and can also be worn (if chosen to) without context of this contest.
Plant life, particularly this garden full of different varieties are an analogy for growth, progress, virility and aspiration. I very much hope that speciation is apparent here as in minute differences between plants, drawn to look like they have similar ancestry (though not chronologically). There is a lot of power for good ideas to grow. In essence the answer to the issue at hand is SECULAR EDUCATION. ♥
The last thing needed in Africa is more missionaries preaching UNTRUTHS about condom use.
