A collection of sketches, illustrations, paintings and photography from 21 contemporary art activists on the front line of the vegan art protest movement, brought together by art-ivist illustrator Tommy Kane.
Vegan Art: A Book of Visual Protest brings together, for the first time, a collection of pro-vegan artworks by 21 contemporary artists assembled by activist and illustrator Tommy Kane to confront one of the biggest issues of our century – the farming of animals for human consumption.
The book features a preface by Kane, a mock-foreword by an unborn baby, and over 200 works created by illustrators, cartoonists, photographers, and painters eager to inform and awaken the public through their art.
Purposefully graphic and controversial – from utopian visions of a vegan world to brutal mutilations of non-human animals and dystopian portrayals of overconsumption in industrial agriculture – Tommy Kane and his fellow artists are unflinching in their advocation of veganism and animal rights.

About the Artist
Tommy Kane has worked as a creative director in advertising for over 35 years. Over that time he has cultivated a very particular obsession with squirrels and a catharsis in documenting his surroundings in his sketchbooks with his humble weapon of choice – the Uni-ball Vision Fine Point pen.
