As you may already know (we mentioned him many times on the Sama Gazette), da-eYe is Max Dana‘s iconic character, and he was born in the mid-Eighties, on the walls of Paris/La Défense in France. da-eYe is facetious and waggish, renowned for his repartee as well as for his witty sense of humour, and his charming and easygoing nature. He’s our guy!
Max uses her iconic character to bring awareness to important causes like when he was a barefoot warrior against poverty to support the Barefoot Against Poverty campaign. He made a nod to movies when he celebrated French silent movie The Artist. da-eYe is also one of the favorite characters kids enjoy drawing when they participate in Sama Kids Day workshops run by Max Dana.
She was supposed to run one last month but it had to be canceled due to lockdown. But it was important to Max to stay connected with the kids so she sent them printable coloring pages with a line drawing to colour in. She just tweeted one of these drawings brothers and sisters sent back to her, and it’s featuring da-eYe, the kids were inspired to draw him protective equipment against Covid-19!
Because of home confinement I can't run any new #SamaKidsDay #Art Workshop, so to keep young #Samayans entertained I created printable coloring pages. Here's the one David Léa Alan and Steve just did with da-eYe wearing a mask (and gloves!) because of #Covid19 #StayHome #StaySafe pic.twitter.com/J8q7voUxSF
