I'm a woman, an illustrator and a pharmacist from a small town called Pula, in Sardinia (Italy).
As a pharmacist I'm one of the few reference points for the caregivers, most often women, who tend -day and night, 24/7- their mentally ill, old relatives. When I heard about the WBP I immediately thought about my women customers and their families, and their never-ending struggles.
As a woman, I think that sex-related vulnerability to mental disease is an important issue we should all know about, try to help with and at least let others know.
I therefore decided to contribute to the cause as an illustrator, by providing the WBP with a compelling, unforgettable logo.
Impressed by these wonderful women, by their powerful ideas and by the need to spread the WBP, I have drawn their logo with a double meaning. At first, it makes you think about the inevitable memory loss related to the Alzheimer's disease. The hidden image, in contrast, is about sharing ideas rather than losing them. A beautiful butterfly drawn by a member of the WBP group inspired my butterfly shapes, flying from her to me.
