The Artist: Faye Pannell (Perth, Australia)
Measures approx 21 in x 21 in.
Faye Pannell is an illustrator, designer, and the founder of Blackmane Supply Co. based in Perth, Australia. In addition to "Such Is Life," Faye's designs can be seen on Blackmane's wide range of awesome clothing and accessories inspired by the landscape of Australia. Beyond Blackmane, Faye's portfolio of design work is inspired by the natural world and the people around her. Faye sees her work as a means to express narratives, telling the stories of her world with illustration and color. Inspired by the technique, line work, and colors of Ken Taylor, along with the handmade aesthetic of Dereck Castle, Faye's work is alive with detail. On first look, her designs jump off the page, instantly imbuing the viewer with layers of meaning. Then, upon closer examination, all of the smaller elements reveal themselves to transport the viewer into another world. BANDITS is proud to feature this incredible artist and the outstanding cause she has chosen to support.
Artist's Charity: - INTERNATIONAL ANTI POACHING FOUNDATION (ZIMBABWE)
The Akashinga (which means "The Brave Ones" in the Shone language of Zimbabwe) is an elite all-female anti-poaching unit of the International Anti Poaching Foundation (IAPF). The project empowers women from disadvantaged communities across Zimbabwe, allowing them to join forces and combat illegal trophy hunting in the country. The women manage a massive network of wilderness areas using an an innovative community-driven approach. Though they are expertly trained to deal with any situation they may face, the team has an interpersonal focus, working with rather than against the local population for the long-term benefits of their own communities and nature.
