This is a rendering of a mural that I will be doing @eurekastreetartfestival festival August 11-18! It’s entitled “This is the darkness of the womb, not of the tomb” One of my favorite functions of art, is the ability to have conversations in public. We are witnessing the crumbling of institutions, the rise of fascism in the United States and abroad. But what new structures can be built in its place? There are a lot of possibilities. I believe that the ones that are the most hopeful are the models built around solidarity. Collectively we can build a society that doesn’t allow ourselves to be oppressed, oppress other or exploit the environment. .

So, I’ve completed my first public art project! I was excited about the possibility of adding more diversity to eureka’s public dialogue. Previously, there was only one other public representation of women of color and that piece was in an alley way. I wanted to put that conversation on our busy intersections. I for one will never blame poc for the failures of capitalism. I won’t allow others be it men of cloth, tie or a flag set me against my brothers and sisters. I will talk more about this project and artists as leaders of society at Morris Graves museum Sunday, July 8th at 2pm.

Amazing photos @leonvillagomez !

We will not stand for a fascist government, systems that leverage our fears, narratives that pit us against each other all for the sake of profit. We are not perfect if we are better together. .

I am the art director and graphic designer for Leslie Castellano for Eureka City Council! I’m very excited to be supporting such an incredible woman. She’s one of the hardest working, dynamic people I know. Her vision and ability to include a staggeringly wide array of people from diverse experience sets and background has been a real inspiration to me. I have all the confidence in the world that Leslie will be a person of integrity that listens and acts upon to the needs and concerns of the citizens of Eureka. Please follow the campaign @leslieeureka .

I’ve been on a little bit of a posting hiatus... I’ve been taking more time to think about the direction of what I do. I’m attempting to deepen and refine my concepts and take on more long term projects that allow me to exercise different aspects of my creativity and meaning making. I normally only post these other projects in my stories. But I decided, at the risk of lower post continuity, to make them more visible in my regular feed. This is a project that I’m currently working on for HACHR. They are a radical rehabilitation organization that I believe can take us from a punitive recovery model towards something more wholistic. More to come! .
