Enter the Dragon
January 5, 2012 § Leave a comment
I spent a lot of time creating artwork for alternative media news websites and blogs last year, and am looking forward to continuing the labor of love as we enter the year of the dragon. I was largely content to keep quiet and let my art speak to the issues by accompanying the words of others. I think it’s a good idea to let real writers speak truth to power, but I may contribute to the discussion from time to time. I will post some of my favorites from 2011 here. Like Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
