As you may know, the US congress is planning to pass an anti-piracy legislation (SOPA) in one week, and this bill will allow the government to not only block access to websites for US residents, but also to take down any website with one court order. This means many sites we are using now (including dA) will be in danger of closing and this will be affecting everyone outside of the US.
To read more about it, there. Have the wiki article
. (wikipedia will close for 24 hours shortly in protest of SOPA, though...)
I am posting this journal to help spread the word about
's project of awareness, and if we all get involved we could be able to bring awareness to this subject and eventually help to stop this bill from passing.
All we have to do is spread the word with... drawings!
A week is a very short time to create something, so the project will only ask for a sketch
(it can even just be a black and white doodle~) with the censor bar
as the central theme. Please don't be afraid of being creative with this, the censor bar can take on different forms and textures~
If you do decide to join, please upload the work onto any social website between Jan 20th-24th
! The more the better! As many social websites will be taking hits from the bill once it passes into law.
The goal of this project is to bring as many artists together as possible! It is an open project so if anyone else is interested, please forward them this message : )
Thanks for reading!
(I based the journal on Kay's words, I hope she doesn't mind ;v; )
