Women's March poster

line drawing, first layer

Saturday morning, January 21, I worked on my poster for my local Women's March. There are so many issues at stake right now, not only for women but also for humanity and the environment, so I wanted an image and words that would symbolize what's at stake. I did the above portrait a long time ago and used the line drawing for this poster.

layers of acrylics and sharpie

I came across a quote by Edgar Mitchell tweeted by Neil deGrasse Tyson which highlighted taking a step back to see a bigger picture, to look beyond our individual experiences and view our world collectively. How to say all of that in my own words?

Before the march, my husband and I went for a bicycle ride to the forest and went hiking. I loved being out there in nature, so I didn't realize how late it was. When we returned home, I only had about 15 minutes to add the words to my poster. I wrote down what came to mind and felt good about it. We are in this together.

  5. FANTASTICALLY done, Juana... your beautiful poster and your participation in the march! How was the march! It's been amazing to see how many marches and protests there were--all around the world too! It's going to be a bumpy ride for a while, but if we're all in it together, we've got a chance! ;) ((HUGS))
