The morning after the Capitol Hill riot, I was driven to make this illustration. It’s based on an American colloquialism that seems especially apt when applied to this shocking attack. When a friend requested postcards of the image so she could send a powerful written message to politicians, it led me to think deeper about how I can do more with my art, especially when it’s inspired by current events. For this reason I’m also making some of these postcards available on my webshop at wholesale costs. Less slacktivism, more activism in 2021!
