This American Century

Here’s a recent series of drawings/paintings that I worked on. They were done in pen with acrylic washes, and document the shittiness of this century, America’s willful and shameful participation in ecological, natural, and man made disasters. Republicans may deny this, but fuck those assholes.

Greatest Hits 2020-2022

I just completed an oil painting called ‘Earth’s Mightiest Zeroes‘. It’s about the police response in Uvalde. It’s part of a large – 4’x6’ – series of paintings that look at just how fucked up America has gotten over the past few years.
