NEW WORK: Homesick | Restless

To be printed on a Risograph by Barry O’Keefe with similar colors. Can’t wait to see how it turns out! The piece is for the Homesick | Restless print exchange/exhibition organized by Barry O’Keefe. All the artists are Richmonders making commentary about the city, living in the it or the duality of loving the city while wanting to leave. I revisited a drawing about the history of the area marked as an African burial ground in Shockoe Bottom. What draws me to this city is the populace’s resilience, culture, innovation and unashamed defiance. What often makes me want to leave are the proposals and failures of the city government.
