HIGH RESOLUTION JPG MOBILE PHONE SCREENSAVER (1080X1920 pixels)
Close-up of a ocean painted with gouache, reminder of the quote: 'We might be in the same storm, we're not in the same boat.'
As I see the black community hurting, my heart fills with grieve. As a white person, I feel ashamed of what my skincolor represents: years and years of oppression. I try to educate myself and do better, and try to express my thoughts and feelings in my art. This sketchbook spread is a result of that.
You can download the spread here in high res, zoom in on the words (featuring a Morgan Harper Nichols poem that wouldn't leave my brain) and some juicy brush strokes. Print it, tape it to your walls, use as screensaver - feel free to get creative!
