Throwback Thursday. 1930s. Said in slightly different ways now.In the autobigraphy “Hosea Hudson: A Negro Communist In The Deep South”, he says that it took him a year of working with Communists in Alabama in the early 1930s before he realized there was a such thing as White Communist. He said that there were so many Black Communists working on things- unions, etc- and that since everyone that talked to him about Communism was Black, he assumed that it was a strictly Black movement.

My favorite Robin Williams picture. RIP


Old painting, new wheatpaste. 

In 2011, I began a series of paintings called Victim of American Fear.(The title is from this article by Adam Serwer for The Prospect. As an illustrator, I’m often inspired to create a painting from something I’ve read.)

The series was meant to address the killings of black people that happen when people find themselves afraid of black people just because they are black. Think Trayvon Martin. Think Oscar Grant. 

Also think Renisha McBride. If I continue this series, I’ll want to include a black woman.  

After the recent killings of more black bodies, I decided to try these paintings out on the street as wheatpastes. 

Critiquing my own work, I do think these paintings are a little over-literal, with the gun targets covering the bodies. I don’t mean to be provocative just for the sake of it. But I do think it’s a strong image. 

These are pasted in Newark.

Beautiful Hugo Gellert painting (original). Gellert was a member of the labor movement in the 1920s and was part of the CPUSA during its heyday. At New York University Bobst Library.

What are the chances that this photo will ever appear in the mainstream media?

The fascists are some heavy dudes

They don’t really give a damn about life

They just don’t want a woman to control her body

Or have the right to choose

She sat in the class I daydream in and I can only hope to be like her.





"Love In the Time of Tear Gas."  Picture from Ferguson

Why aren’t we seeing this everywhere? Soooo much more meaningful than this, which was everywhere:

Those were my EXACT thoughts.

We all know why.

"Love in the Time of Tear Gas" is a BRILLIANT title for this photo.
