What’s in store for me in the direction i don’t take?
“… the moments when everything is open, when all options are present, and all is undecided – mere destinies unfolding. Our choices shift into one plane of existence, the extension of every path still available, until we pick the red tie instead of the blue; harbor anger instead of compassion; attempt to fix it or break it; and all our possibilities collapse into the singular of what is, rippling outward from the moment of decision to affect our lives in ways unknown… The noise at the back of our mind wondering anxiously, What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?”
Activism has turned into one big group therapy session. It doesn’t matter what we accomplish—what matters is how we feel about it. The goal of the action isn’t to change the material balance of power, it’s to feel “empowered”… This rerouting of the goal from political change to inner change is the reaction of both a spoiled, self-absorbed people, and the utterly desperate, desperate to do something, anything.
I’m excited to be going over small-scale proofs of much larger metal prints for an upcoming exhibition of illustrations I did, some alone and some in collaboration with colleagues, for or related to Avatar and Korra between 2003 and 2013. I’ll be posting more information on the exhibition very soon, but for now I can at least say it will be in the greater Boston area. Stay tuned!
Bring this to New York!

Nearly two dozen socialists in the Midwest were hauled before a grand jury because an undercover FBI agent said they were talking about revolution. But speech isn’t supposed to be a crime, even when it disagrees with the state.
…an undercover special agent was intent on luring people into saying ominous things about “revolution” and, sometimes, some of these people indulged her.
