Artist Perfectly Illustrates The Social Issues Of 2020

Decrease In Wildlife Deaths
An editorial illustration about the massive decline in wildlife deaths on roads due to people staying home and traveling less during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Iggdeh, an artist based in US: “I just started making illustrations at the end of 2019, actually. When I published my first illustration a few months later, it kind of lit a spark inside me that said “maybe this can be more than just a hobby.” You see, I’m actually a writer by profession and “iggdeh” is my artist pseudonym. I’ve always been attracted to editorial & political art and I always wanted to get into it, but there was never enough time, or so I thought.

I’m also a progressive and an activist at heart. It’s hard not to feel hurt when people are victimized or when reading about this or that type of injustice at home in the US or elsewhere in the world. There has been too much ugliness for a long time, especially in the last 4 years. So I’m trying to blend these two identities together in the type of illustrations and messages I create. If possible, I’d like to carve out a progressive space in the editorial world and help paint the voice of like-minded journalists, organizations, and news media. I’m not there yet, far from it, but hopefully, soon I can be.”
