Hello! It's been awhile. A lot has happened these past few months. In response to the election I've been focusing on art as resistance. First project was arts/signage co-chair for the womxn's march on Seattle. Our main focus on that was a visual representation of the mission statement through giant puppets. One thing I learned of organizing all this is I actually don't get to do any art but delegate others to do it. But! I did do this poster, well, partially. It's my design and drawing and the wonderfully amazing Liberty Harrington put the text in and made the background a uniform cream.
Reaching out to be arts co-chair was basically going full Gumby mode. I stretched my legs into a place I didn't quite belong and was a rush of learning to catch up with my feet. Stepping into those spaces is the best way to learn, being inundated with new experiences, conflicts, and learning curves everyday. I did have an amazing co-chair, Kristen Ramirez, which helped immensly along the way.
I'll save the puppet project details for the next post :)
