Week 24: 2012 // Futures Illustration – Enough for the Whole World

Patsy Palmer's Future by Gemma Sheldrake

Throughout 2012 we are sharing an illustration with you every week to help you to re-imagine the future that you choose. For the twenty-third week of 2012, we are sharing actress Patsy Palmer’s Future. Patsy is most famous for her role in the BBC soap opera Eastenders, as Bianca.

Patsy Palmer’s Future by Gemma Sheldrake

Patsy’s Future:

The Future I Choose is filled with love. No War. Enough food and water for the WHOLE world. A safe place for our children

Artwork by Gemma Sheldrake:

My work normally targets a female audience and within that mothers with children. I considered this an ideal image to portray as it is the mother’s job to raise and educate their children about the world, doing so teaching them the responsibilities of looking after the planet, not littering, caring for others and so on. My work regularly includes female and cute themes, which is why I decided on setting the scenario as having a tea party with little Earth, like good friends should.
