Hey folx. I'm writing a free book called Riot Medicine to help teach people first aid for protests, riots, and insurrections. Ⓐ 🏴 ⚕️

Some volunteers have already completed illustrations, but there's still many more that are needed before this can be distributed. If you're able to help out (even with just a single illustration!) get in touch.

You can find out more at

Examples of content (including illustrations) are provided below.

Stylistically, some illustrations will need to be rather realistic to capture anatomical structures, but there's also room for some that are more stylized and whimsical. To keep this book from being a wall of text, I'd like to include zine-like doodles and an open to suggestions for things to include.

For things I need, I have reference images I can link to, to help illustrators capture what I need.

@hakan_geijer I can't draw for shit, but with reference images I can do some digital illustrations. And I'm pretty good with making charts.

What kind of timeline do you have on this? I'd like to help but my schedule is tight.

@jessmahler I don’t have a schedule. It’s don’t when it’s done. Do you have a sample of some of your work?

@hakan_geijer I did the header on my website, including most of the book covers. (The Bargain cover was a joint project, someone else did the drawing in the middle and I did the frame).

I don't have any graph samples, mostly I do them for fun in excel and don't bother saving them.

@amaral require? No. Burning oils gladly accept. Is this something you’re interested in?

@hakan_geijer @amaral I literally just woke up and meant “but it is something I would accept” and autocorrect is just on a wild ride

@hakan_geijer Okay. Just checked out your website. Love your work and I'll add it to the "recommended websites" list on my website. Keep up the good work comrade! 🖤

@hakan_geijer I can do charts, mind maps, lists, etc. I can't do illustration.

@RadioAngel ahh I mostly have charts taken care of but thanks for the offer ☺️

@hakan_geijer No problem! Good luck with the project, I can't wait to read it when it done.

@hakan_geijer I'm about halfway through reading the preview document and I'm so grateful for your/y'all's work! Thank you for your time and insight.

@hakan_geijer yo i tried to shoot you an email and got a mailer daemon but id love to do 2-3 for you

@Hi_cial Oh no. I hope I didn’t type my email wrong on the website. I’m going to recreate the list of things I need and post it soon. With instructions too. I’ll @ you when I do :)
