This is an illustration I did for Creative Comic Collection vol.19, Voice of The People, which was published in Taiwan.
The theme of the illustration is about Taiwanese pursuing their democracy, how they have experienced, struggled, protested and been persecuted.  

Coincidently, right now in Taiwan, there are many people, mostly students, protesting for a curriculum change which the protesters believed being misconducted.  
There are some links from CNN if you're interested about the issue:……

That looks so amazing. Wow. I like that you used multiple colours, yet still made it feel rather monochromatic.

Here's hoping things get better for Taiwan.
 Saw a bit of the news about the protest and news surrounding the curriculum few days ago. From what I understood of the news, it's really unfortunate for the students with the changing textbooks.
