STICKER - NOVEMBER 20, 2018
Based on the continuing obfuscation of justice in the United States, I decided "enough is enough", and created a simple response to the lack of leadership in our country. This free bumper sticker typifies the condition of our current state and the need for major political reform.
NEW SERIES - MARCH 5, 2018
This series was inspired from the authoritarianism found in our every day life. From combative strong armed tactics, either psychologically or physically, we continue on a road of deception and destruction. Racism runs prevalent in our society as well as in our world. I created this series due to the fact that we need to change this prehistoric plague in our society. We need to think more about how we coexist within a world of understanding and how we need one another more than ever.
ACTIVISM - JANUARY 5, 2018
There is a real risk of this pipeline project to the Potomac River, the drinking water source for over 6 million people, and a risk to several high quality West Virginia streams and to private property in both Maryland and West Virginia. I created this campaign poster image for numerous nonprofit agencies to promote the end of this risky project that ultimately could harm millions of people. On January 2, 2019, the Maryland Board of Public Works voted to DENY a request from Columbia Gas to construct a distribution pipeline through the state and beneath the Potomac River.
TRIBUTE - MARCH 5, 2018
The Ballad of Reading Gaol by Oscar Wilde
"This wallpaper will be the death of me - one of us will have to go"
I made this piece to pay tribute to Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) who was sentenced in 1895 for 'acts of gross indecency with other male persons' and sentenced to two years' hard labor. He was sent first to Pentonville, then to Wandsworth and finally to Reading Gaol." He wrote this poem in 1898 and died two years later and was buried in a pauper's grave on the outskirts of Paris.
