The True Story of Ben and Jerry

This is the final project I produced at the end of my Foundation in Art and Design course. It is based on the suffering inflicted on the cows in the dairy industry. In order to emphasize the truth behind my story, I named the two calves involved in the story after the well-known ice-cream brand Ben & Jerry's. The book addresses both adults and children, with the aim to spread awareness about the cruelty behind the purchase and consumption of dairy products. At the time I was highly interested in producing bold black and white drawings with a strong emphasis on line. I believe that the style of the illustrations contributes to the immediacy I wanted the book to have.

The illustrations were drawn by hand using black pens with different line weights. They were then edited in Adobe Photoshop.
