These fab #MakeArtNotWar t-shirts designed by Emily Owen are now available – and sales proceeds go to help refugees.
As we previously reported, Emily is on a mission to help those directly facing the consequences of the terrible war in Syria by raising funds for victims through sales of comic art.
She has already asked for help from artists willing to donate work – and, of course, the support of comic art fans by buying it.
These t-shirts, made by the Rogue Screen Print Company, are the latest addition to her ongoing fund-raising project, which has already sold great art by the likes of Marc Laming, Jenny Brown, Alfie Gallagher, Rob Ellis, Mike Jackson, Nick Prolix and Jim Bampfield.
All proceeds go to Good Gifts: Help Syrian Refugees campaign, which is offering practical help with lasting benefits by providing things like warm clothes and bedding for some 600,000 victims of the war.
