Butterflies For Lupus

Tomorrow, 10th May, is World Lupus Day.  Lupus is a chronic disease which affects the immune system. It can affect so many different organs in the body, both visible and invisible. One of the most common visible signs of it is a butterfly-shaped pigmentation on the face. For several years now the lovely Dawn Clarkson has asked people to create art inspired by butterflies , which she then shares on her blog and pinterest account.

This is the first year I have sent Dawn some work. As a designer it is lovely to be able to create, but to be able to share your work and raise awareness of a disease that affects so many people is an added bonus. Here is my Butterfly For Lupus:
