Maine, and Why I’m Here.

So, Maine is a pretty magical state. I am here because I got called on to work with the Beehive Design Collective. The Beehive Collective is a volunteer-driven non-profit political organization that uses illustrations as educational tools to spread stories of resistance to corporate globalization. If you'd like to read more about them, here's the link

This is the rest of my 35mm film from the past few weeks.

Here's what we are working on currently. I am helping the bees finish up a drawing that is a huge poster depicting resistance to corporations threatening the cultural and ecological vitality of the Mesoamerica region. After the poster is finished, it will be toured, lectured, and distributed around the world in an effort to spread education on the issue. The photo above is of Kehben Grifter grinding in details in the studio last week. It's humbling to be surrounded by a talented team of artists.

Homebase for now. Below is the entrance to the magic studio through the library. 


Life is good here. I made a new friend, but he just sleeps on the couch a lot. Leave comments or questions, more art updates soon.
