Artist Creates a Counterbalance to 2020’s Bad Events With Her “Good News” Illustration Series

2020 was a wreck, and everywhere in the media, there was more and more bad news every day. Being surrounded everyday by this negativity, Amii James an illustrator from North Devon, United Kingdom decided to create a counterbalance to this.

The idea came to me when I saw a very generic list of good things that happened in 2020 (in retrospect, this wasn’t a particularly reliable source, but we learn from our mistakes!). I thought it was lovely, and I decided to illustrate a handful to share the joy with my followers. The response was incredible, and the post has reached millions of people. It’s great to know that you have brought a slice of positivity into so many people’s day. I loved creating the post, and people loved seeing it, so it only made sense to make it a weekly series!” said Amii when contacted by Earthwonders.

Despite everything bad that was happening, there was still some good news that for a lot of people went unnoticed. That is the reason why Amii started her ‘Good News This Week’ news series to share with people those positive stories.

“Many people have told me that seeing my weekly “Good News This Week” series is a highlight of their week, and the only time that they come across any positive news. Quite frankly, the only time I see positive news is when I do research for my posts”, explained the artists. “There is no denying that it was an awful year for many reasons, and good news can’t make that any better. However, I think it was felt globally that there wasn’t a shred of positivity that occurred for the entire year. So, to show that that isn’t the case is a pleasure, and a weight off the shoulders for many.”
Even though it looked impossible to find some good news in 2020, fortunately there were plenty. You just needed to be scrolling on the right webpages. “There are actually many websites that have the sole purpose of featuring only positive news stories! Before this series, I was never aware of them, but now they’re my favorite thing to browse through each week. So although the main news is very ‘doom and gloom’ and therefore the only thing that people regularly see, if you actively seek out the positive news then thankfully they aren’t difficult to find! In fact, sometimes I struggle to narrow down which stories I want to use, and that is usually decided by which ones I’d like to illustrate,” adds Amii for Earthwonders.

20 Pictures of German Shepherds That Show You How Adorable and Loving They Are

I believe you all have heard of German Shepherds. They are the most steadfastly loyal companions, and consistently rank at the top of the most popular dog breeds, and it’s easy to see why. German shepherd dogs (GSD) are noble, diligent, loyal, and highly intelligent dogs. They are large in size and have very streamlined, athletic builds that make them both strong and agile.

Though they are excellent herding dogs, German shepherds are very well suited to work as service animals, such as guide dogs for the blind. They are excellent performing as working dogs, especially in police and military operations. They also make highly effective guard dogs. Of course, the German shepherd dog also makes a wonderful companion in the right home.

One of the most recognizable breeds today, German shepherds are celebrated for their impressive balance of power and grace. They surely mark a presence in your heart as well. To all of those who own a German shepherd, they will strongly agree to that fact.

Below we’ve made a list of their adorable pictures, and they will make you fall in love with this breed once more.
