Miriam Wins Second Gold!
Miriam Martincic was awarded a second gold medal from the Society of Illustrators, New York, in the uncommissioned category, 2021.
Box is a self-initiated piece inspired by an article from BBC News, denouncing the horrifying living conditions of children in US migrant child camps, where they are victims of neglect, filth, fear, and even sexual abuse.
The illustration conveys feelings of desperation and helplessness. We hope it will raise awareness and call for action.
The first medal was awarded to Miriam by the Society in 2020, for the work Having It All.
Miriam is a multitalented artist, among her specialties are illustration, graphic design, pattern design, lettering and stone carving, and you can find more of her work here.
