Drawing Powerful Women: graphic novelist Maureen Burdock

Pastel from "Maisa & the Bad Muslim Girls." By Maureen Burdock.

No muscle-bound heroes or busty damsels-in-distress here. In the graphic novels of artist Maureen Burdock, women battle to overcome real-life atrocities like sexual violence, domestic abuse and murder. Burdock says, “These stories are hopeful and the heroines actively shape and reform their communities with their intelligence, humor, kindness, and a bit of magical realism.”

Our World in Numbers: Tracking the Live World Clock

LP_image_PoodwaddleLiveWorldClock_screenshot

A woman contracts malaria. A man suffers his first stroke. A war robs a family of their lives. As much as we lament these misfortunes, we still feel detached from them—keen on viewing disasters as hypothetical scenarios rather than as distinct daily possibilities. How differently would we react to these events if we could fathom their daily or yearly impact? If we could pinpoint the escalating rates of births, deaths, and disasters by the minute? Poodwaddle.com‘s Live World Clock does exactly that.

We are proud to unveil the second in our series of four videos. We made these to highlight a few important causes—in this case, domestic violence—and to tell the world what The Lamp Project is all about. And we made them thanks to an all-volunteer effort by a big group of wonderful and talented people.
