Create a piece to support the Black Lives Matter movement to raise money for the National Bail Fund Network. I wanted to create something that I would wear or hang in my home, and illustrated exactly how I felt: angry at the current state of the world, and the last 400 years of American racism and global anti-Blackness.
The art had to be no more than 14” by 14”, and use no more than 4 colors. I used the tradition of protest posters and art that came before me as inspiration. I played with bright color palettes, but ultimately wanted the woman in the art to be unmistakably Black with brown skin. Rather than my usual shadows, I used the same color for her hair, turtleneck, features and separating body parts. For the size, I wanted to take up the full space on the shirt, so she couldn’t be missed when people wore it out in the world.
