HANDMAID OFMICHAEL
HANDMAID OFMICHAEL A solemn freckled face in a Handmaid's face-shadowing bonnet looks out at the viewer. she's only shown from shoulders up, but she wears the handmaid's garb and stands against the rock wall. This is the direction this country is taking regarding the reproductive rights for women. Planned Parenthood has been defunded. We could easily lose Roe v Wade. Scary times for women.
COLOR BLIND
COLOR BLINDA face stands out against an off-white and brown checkered panel. The skin color on the face is in alternating stripes of brown and off-white. A hand of each color hides his eyes. He is colorblind, as we all should be when it comes to the amount of melanin one’s skin.
BOXED IN
BOXED INScience now tells us we have less than 12 years to make significant changes if we want to stem the disasters ahead because of the climate crisis. A blue mottled box hangs in the star filled night sky. Two sides have been removed, revealing a head inside. The head, although in the shape of a man, is made from a map of the world. It covers his bald head, face and neck and drips down the side of the box as though it is melting. We who are informed, realize the immensity and incredible danger of the situation. But the world is boxed in by ignorance and the future for humanity looks incredibly bleak unless we act now and act big.
EVOLUTION
EVOLUTIONEVOLUTION As a #scifi & #fantasy fan, I wonder what future humans will be like in, say, a century from now. Given we survive climate change and the nuclear age, I could see us slowly morphing into cyborg beings as our technological prowess grows. Perhaps we’ll wear our tech, almost like a second skin, its complexity broadcasting our capabilities. No matter what we attain technologically, my wish for humankind is that we evolve as a species and culture as well. That our culture adopts a foundation of equality and peace, and that we make our decisions based on science, logic, and reason.
BUILD FRIENDSHIPS

ROSIE THE RIVETER 2.0
ROSIE THE RIVETER 2.0A 21st century Rosie the Riveter looks forward with determination as she flexes her muscle in the old familiar pose of defiance. She sports red spiky hair instead of the 40’s kerchief, an ankh earring and tattoos on her arms and wears a sleeveless blue tank top. She’s today’s Rosie the Riveter.
Black Hole
Black HoleCopies of rigid white men in red suits float up against a black and white background towards a black hole. This signifies the obliviousness of the GOP as their policies pull them towards the darkness of a black hole.
BOTH SIDES OF ME
BOTH SIDES OF MEA young woman with light brown skin holds the halves of two faces, one dark brown, the other white. She holds these partial faces in alternate hands of brown and white crisscrossed in front of her. She is more than the sum of her parts. Both sides of me, she defiantly says to the viewer.
It's Time
It's TimeMen with time march forwards towards a more egalitarian future. The time has come that we accept that our diversity is our greatest strength. It’s time that we acknowledge racism and what is happening to the black boys and men in this country. It’s time to move forward into the 21st century where logic, science and reason prevail against abject ignorance.
DON'T TRASH MY WORLD
DON'T TRASH MY WORLDWe trash her world, we trash her future. She, as well as the rest of humanity, are at the edge of a cliff. We must act now if we want our children to have any kind of future. Push Forward. United we stand.
THE HANDMAID'S TALE
THE HANDMAID'S TALEThree handmaids stand against the gray rock wall. They wear their red capes and white, face-hiding hats. Their garb shows that they are owned and little more than slaves. This is an illustration of The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood. It has come into the common awareness because of the TV series based on the book and because the rights of women are in a dangerous position. Old, rich, white men think they have the right to control women’s bodies. Women are outraged and hopefully will cause a tsunami in 2020. Vote Blue to protect women’s rights.
THERMONUCLEAR TRUMP
THERMONUCLEAR TRUMPTrump, mouth open wide, lies floating in lava while a nuclear mushroom cloud rises out of his mouth against a dark night sky.

BLIND AND HANDCUFFEDA man covers his face with his hands, yet his eyes are on the outside of his hands. He looks pensively to the left. He’s bald, has a long nose, and wears handcuffs. He’s wearing a business suit and tie. This image signifies the dilemma of those attempting to find out the truth about the Trump and all his crimes. They blinded (although they can plainly see the corruption) but they are handcuffed by the sheer power of the President whom the GOP, the justice department and big donors let get away with anything.

America's Worst Brand
America's Worst BrandAmerica's Worst Brand - Congressional Republicans are as alike as sardines in a can, and about as palatable. They all line up to vote for things they don't have a clue about (a sardine's brain is pretty small) in order to further their own interests regardless of the consequences to anyone else. They should be canned.

Racial Checkbox
Racial CheckboxThis is a bi-racial woman making a statement that she isn't defined by a racial checkbox.The skin on her face is divided into brown and white squares. Her nappy hair is black on one side and white on the other. She wears a blouse that is half black and half white with alternating check marks on the collar. She’s against an alternating black and white background. The words, in alternating black and white against her blouse say, “I’m not defined by a racial checkbox.” With the census coming up and Trump’s attempt to put a citizenship question on the paperwork, we are more and more reminded that we need to acknowledge and do more about racism. But regardless, this woman rebels against the checkbox on the census. She’s a woman. She’s a thinker. She’s an American.
