Mr. Hegemony

 Manila Tag

Here's a tag with a background made from paper that came free inside a Somerset Studio magazine. I printed then hand-cut this vintage image, pasted it to the background and applied subtle shading with a water-soluble pencil. The newspaper text, Green Eggs Be Damned!, was added via an image transfer technique.

As a child, Dr. Seuss was the first author I became of aware of and I dearly loved his books and read them over and over again. I don't know what country I live in anymore where certain books are now banned. Isn't this what Hitler did? God help us.

I am grateful I can use my art to express my feelings and I'm linking this post to Simon's Monday challenge, this week's challenge is to use something green.

As always, I hope this post finds you well and happy and I appreciate your visit.

Until next time, take care.

  2. Amen to those words of truth! Go Dr. Suess! Or are we not supposed to say that? What is happening to our country, anyway?! Love your art and so happy you can use it to express yourself other than some of these other ways we are seeing.
