I have been sitting creating digital art with my tablet, about all my brain was fit for so over the next few days I’ll post the images I had fun playing with.
Today, however, I created the above image after reading about the intention of the Trump administration to gut funding to the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
It brings to mind the book-burning of the fascists in Nazi Germany and underpins the ethos of the new administration – money/profits at all costs and contempt for the artistic heritage and enrichment of the nation.
It’s easy to feel depressed when you read of this savagery and barbarity, but nevertheless across the US there’s a ground swell of opposition to the actions of the Trump administration which give hope for a resistance movement to a potentially fascist and ignorant bunch of blowhards.
With this in mind, I remembered the Fleetwood Mac song, World Turning, which inspired the above piece of digital art, and below is the band singing this number.
Remember: Onwards. Upwards. Resist. Create a new community!
And just for your information, here’s the foundation art for the final image:
