"Compassion" bag design by Dallas artist Monica Moody.
“To me, compassion is simply caring for others, especially those that cannot care for themselves. Of course this includes other species, and one that I’m particularly fascinated by and concerned about is the honey bee.
Bees and other pollinating insects play an essential role in our ecosystem, and a third of our food depends on their pollination. Their population is rapidly declining, and this is a great concern. What would we do without them? They're more important than you may think. (You can read about this situation, causes, solutions and more at http://sos-bees.org.)
The bee seems like a minuscule creature that does a simple job, but that job is one of great importance. With the painting I created for this bag design, I wanted to convey the simplicity of the bee itself, but also its majesty - juxtaposed with a turbulent background that represents the chaos of our wealth-driven world and our propensity for causing decay and destruction. In my design, as well as in my hopes, the bee prevails.
I am thrilled to have been selected to participate in this Art Con and Cykochik causes collaboration and very grateful for the votes that led to my design being one of the three that may go into production. It is an honor to have been a part of this special project."
