I encountered this work of art while running errands in the neighborhood today. I do not think I need to state who the person depicted is. We know. The whole world knows, unfortunately.
As a fellow artist I have to say the rendering and line work here is superb. This person has clearly received training in that respect. The incorporation of a drainage pipe— which has discharged some vile substance, quite fitting— as his mouth is nothing short of inspired. In fact, like this so much:
- I have seen fit to post it here.
- I am not disclosing its location.
- I have created two postcards for sale featuring this lovely image. I have priced them quite reasonable at $1.50 and $1.75 a pop. You can view and purchase them here and here.
Small business owners who work long hours. If these folks were white and Christian the GOP would be all over this. But they are not so we have this. Ah, the hypocrisy!
In any case, gentle readers, do not be reluctant about forwarding this post to any/all elected officials— be they municipal, state or Federal— so as to make it crystal fucking clear to them that we— not simply the Yemeni-American Community— have a problem here. Solidarity is what gets shit done folks…
