With "Illustrate your Life by Mandy van Goeije" a unique, quiet and safe, almost sacred little online space has been created where people can share their authentic creative expressions after their life stories in the form of autobiographic visual work. That can be drawings, sketches, paintings, illustrations and even comics. I wasn't brought up in a religious family, but as a metaphor for this place I have a vision of a cool and quiet little chapel with thick walls that keep out the noise and keeps us cool, dry and safe. It's got beautiful and colorful stained glass windows that bring in beautifully colored light. And of course there are lots and lots of candles. Not for the deceased, not for prayer, but for each and every one of us...that our light may shine!
