Gemma explains, "When thinking of why I went vegan, my initial thoughts were of farm animals. Saving them was at the forefront of my mind. But as time went by, I realised that being vegan wasn't only about not eating animals. For me it's about causing the least possible suffering for all, and that extends to protecting endangered species, preserving rainforests, protesting hunts and fighting for all animals rights. And so came this piece. It would have been easy to use a cow or pig as a symbol of my veganism, but I wanted to show the other aspects too.
Art speaks to us all in one way or another, a universal language, so it makes sense to use it as a platform to get a message across. I've been vegan for about 5 years now and take so much joy in combining my love of animals with my passion for drawing."
