“Let’s Stick Together”

Drawings for Europe
The project was hatched by the Gruffalo’s co-creator, Axel Scheffler, and Markus Weber, head of the children’s book publisher Moritz Verlag, during a meeting on the day of the referendum. The idea was to create thought-provoking visions of Europe in response to Brexit. Drawings for Europe brings together 17 illustrators from across the continent in a project that aims to promote the strengths of the European community.

The illustrations will be exhibited from next week in Berlin at Germany’s Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (Bundesarbeitsministerium). They are to be auctioned next year, the proceeds of which will go to Pulse of Europe, a pro-EU citizens’ initiative founded in Frankfurt in 2016.
