I was inspired by several things while working on this poster design:

  • Amanda Palmer’s #ArtNotGuns hashtag.
  • The Parkland, Florida kids on Twitter. I’ve been watching them rally support for the student walkouts since the shooting at their school, and it’s nothing short of inspiring to see these young people at work.
  • My general loathing of the idea that we suddenly have money to arm teachers, but not pay them what they’re worth. Also, the cutting of art and music teachers, in favor of security guards and metal detectors.

It appears 2018 has become the year of me venting my frustration at the state of the world…
