This is the second image I worked on for the illustrated calendar project with COSV for the World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd. It can be downloaded for a screen background here, at a printable resolution here and the press-statement that it is launched with (in Italian) can be found here.
World Press Freedom Day has been established by the United Nations General Assembly on May 3rd to celebrate the fundamental principles of press freedom; to evaluate press freedom, to defend the media from attacks on their independence and to pay tribute to journalists who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
Together with the press agency IPS and the comic publisher Becco Giallo, COSV celebrates 2011 World Press Freedom Day with May Calendar this illustration, an original graphic novel by Becco Giallo online tomorrow on COSV and IPS websites and reports on Press Freedom (and the lack of it) around the world on www.ipsnews.net - www.ipsnotizie.it .
