ANIMALS OF THE EARTH

Artist Lynda Bell explains how veganism shapes her utopian-inspired paintings

Tell us about your own vegan journey and a little bit about you now.

Back when I was 16 and first became vegetarian, I did not know anyone who was vegetarian and had not heard of veganism at all. It was like this for quite a few years for me; I was the unusual person in my group of friends because I didn’t eat meat. It is wonderful to see how different things are now and how many vegans there are in the world. My decision to go vegan came about after reading an article in a vegan magazine in New Zealand. There was a part in this article where the author said to imagine an alien race came to earth and put us all on farms, made the females continuously reproduce, take their babies and hook them up to milking machines while killing most of the males. It was like a light switched on in my mind and I decided to become vegan at that moment. I have never regretted it — I only wonder why it took me so long.

About Vegan Life

It’s the most wonderful time of the year which means dark nights and crisp cold days, rich cinnamon-infused foods and, in my house, Miracle on 34th Street on repeat. I turn into that annoying person that most people hate at Christmas. I start listening to carols in early November, wearing ridiculous jumpers and get myself into a state of overexcitement for the entirety of December leading to near exhaustion by Christmas Eve. Combining my passions for Christmas and veganism for the December issue of Vegan Life, therefore, has been immensely satisfying for me and it should be just as satisfying for you because we have a bumper issue! This month we have made Vegan Life even bigger (and better) with 122 pages full of your favourite regulars as well as interviews, news and the best vegan recipes around. These extra pages give you the perfect excuse to curl up in a chair just a little longer and have some you-time to read and escape the ever-so-slightly-manic Christmas hysteria. In a whistle stop tour of the magazine we have; an interview with Ingrid Kirkman, founder of PETA; Fat Gay Vegan on shopping at independents; an article on the importance of iodine in our diets and an excellent travel section focusing on the vegan scene in Brazil. Finally, I want to share some very exciting news from Vegan Life HQ. As some of you may know we were nominated for the Best Vegan Magazine by the VegFest UK Awards and… we won! I want to say thank you to everyone who voted for Vegan Life and to those who read the magazine. We count ourselves incredibly lucky to have such a loyal readership who are so supportive of what we do. Vegan Life was founded, and is still run, by a team of vegans passionate about making a change in the world. We are seeing the start of that change and we will be with you every step of the way into the future. For now, enjoy the festive period and we will see you in the new year.
