2 Banners that I painted back in 2007 and 2008
This was outside the Staten Island armory on the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing (Auguat 6, 2007). The banner was about 20 feet long, and created with paint and canvas that we had salvaged. It reads "Nukes Off the Table".
This was created in the spring of 2008, using the same paint and same roll of canvas. Boy are we thrifty. Our Food Not Bombs project lasted from Thanksgiving of 2007 until April of 2008, every Wednesday in front of Staten Island Borough Hall. We fed people for free with food we had salvaged, because me and my friends are very fond of salvaging things. Eventually we had to salvage our free time, because there were only 3 of us running the whole thing and it took a lot of work to maintain.
I started this blog while trying to teach myself how to draw and hoping to find a professional artist to mentor under. Then I decided I needed to go to school. Now I'm about to graduate with a degree in graphic design and go on to a B.S. in fine art.
