>What is it?
A collective of drawfags depicting historical tragedies as cute anime girls!
Think Black Death, The Great Famine, Great Fire of Rome, the Titanic, the Fire of Notre-Dame, etc.
>What is it??
Think of it as a doujin (independently published) artbook.
Similar projects have been done in the past.

>Can I join?
Any help is welcome. We need both artists and History enthusiasts.
There will be some quality control, but you don't have to be a pro. If you're capable of producing a fully-finished illustration in a moe style, that's all we need.
The digital artbook will be released on May 1st, 2020.
Either join the Discord server: https://discord.gg/vKU5mtJ
Or get a tripcode (User##Password) and post in the threads.
I'll look into more options as we go.
>What if I get #cancelled on Twitter??
That is not impossible. You are free to submit your artwork with an alias.
>Will I work for free?
For the exposure. :^)
The project does not intend to make any profit. Do it if you like the concept.
Some events are chosen for their death tolls (the Holocaust), others by its historical relevance (9/11, which "only" killed 3000 people), or even by being fresh on people's minds (Notre-Dame Fire in 2019, no deaths).
The project is meant to be as apolitical as possible, so we'll go with whatever is the "academic consensus" on them.
The main goal is the appreciation of moe girls and History. Rather than to offend, the project aims at making people even if just a little bit more informed about and interested in past events of humanity.
