I am not exactly a socially conscious artist, but I felt like I needed to do this. What made me want to do it? Last week I was listening to the radio and heard the “knock knock” joke the defense lawyer made. Pissed me off. You makin’ jokes while a Mother is crying for her son. I sketched this that night and decided to sit on it for a few days. Finished it today. Something simple. Iconic.
I understand everyday kids are killed for stupid, senseless reasons, but Trayvon has become a symbol for all of them. God Bless the family of that young brother.
Let me stop. This is difficult.
So excited to be presenting @ ‘Kaleidoscope’ on June 23, 2013!
