Artist Statement

Using Adobe Illustrator, I created a design consisting of the President of the United States, where the skin has been replaced by oil with drips coming off the bottom of his face, representing his choice to choose pollution and oil over the Paris Climate Change deal. I've always believed strongly in environmental beliefs and wanted to put the environment over anything because without an environment we have nothing. We're killing the Earth while being something living on it and not giving NASA the money to get off of it. Air pollution is causing the planet to warm up quickly, water pollution is killing hundreds of thousands of oceanic creatures. Oil spills and fossil fuels are what I like to call "pollution machines", so I was inspired to base my piece around oil. - Addison Miller

I'm a fifteen-year-old teenager going into my junior year in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and I have a passion for politics and a hobby for graphic design. This website brings both of those together which I love. I was introduced to this site during the second semester of my sophomore year by my graphic design teacher when she had us do a piece based on See America and I created one for the Badlands national park. I was inspired by this website to do more, and here I am.
