As part of our #20CC anniversary, last year we joined forces with Fine Acts to spark a global dialogue on what better sharing looks like in action. Our #BetterSharing collection of illustrations was the result — we gathered insights from 12 prominent open advocates around the world and tasked 12 renowned artists who embrace openness with transforming these perspectives into captivating visual pieces available under a CC license.
Each month throughout 2023, we will be spotlighting a different CC-licensed illustration from the collection on our social media headers and the CC blog. For September, we’re excited to showcase “Better Sharing, Better Future” by Spanish illustrator, Maria Picassó i Piquer. The piece, licensed under CC BY-SA 4.0, was inspired by a quote from Kyle Smith, CC Canada member & member of LexDAO and Fellow in Gitcoin’s KERNEL incubator:
“Better Sharing, Brighter Future means continuing Jobs’s ‘bicycle of the mind’ dream with modern ‘IoT’ general purpose machines like Raspberry Pi so we can unleash the latent power of humanity and innovate ourselves out of this fossil-fuel-driven climate crisis.”
Meet the artist
Maria is a Catalan artist born in 1983. She graduated in Architecture and soon left her office job to be a full-time illustrator, her lifetime passion. Navigating between design and illustration, her works cover a wide variety of supports such as magazines, books, clothing and video games published worldwide. She’s got a passion for distilling faces down to their most recognisable essence. Her recognizable geometric caricatures have led her to be a guest speaker in various conventions in both Europe and USA.
