While the world reacted by  pouring their hearts out on social media with #KiyiyaVuranInsanlik and #HumanityWashedAshore, the creative kind went a step ahead with their tributes and shared sketches.

The biggest highlight in all these sketches was the bright red T-shirt and shorts that Aylan was wearing at the time of his death.

The fact that he was found dead lying face down in the surf on a Turkish beach, looking like he was peacefully sleeping, was what seemed to have hit people the hardest.

Here are few of the sketches that artists from across the world drew in memory of the Aylan:

Ne “gemicikler” var binenleri karun eden, ah ne gemiler var küçücük bir bedeni karşı kıyıya taşıyamayan… Zamanında…

Aylan, along with his five-year-old brother and mother, drowned when the overcrowded boat they were travelling in capsized on its run from Turkey to the Greek island of Kos. The Krudish family were Syrian refugees on their way to Europe and onwards to Canada. The family had left Syria few years back due to the ongoing civil-war and Islamic State persecution.

Abdullah Kurdi, Aylan’s father and the only surviving member of the family, had shared the heartbreaking story with the world. He said that he no longer wished to head west and was instead going back Syria to bury his family and spend rest of his life besides their grave there.
