Breathing New Life Into America by Caitlin Alexander


Design By:
Caitlin Alexander

I am an illustrator based in Austin, Texas with a particular love for dry-brush gouache painting. Both my life and work are heavily influenced by the aesthetics of the 1940's, '50s and '60s. I fancy myself a collector of memories as much as a collector of things, and enjoy bringing this sense of nostalgia to my audience.

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Proceeds Support:
Sunrise Movement
Proceeds support Sunrise Movement, a growing army of young people dedicate to making climate change an urgent priority across America, ending the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and electing leaders who stand up for the health and well-being of all people. While the Green New Deal is still in its infancy, at CAN we’ve taken up the charge of helping the public understand and imagine what could be possible with this exciting new set of policies -- just as the artists of the original New Deal helped to inform and advocate for those innovative programs over 80 years ago.

Artist Statement

I think it's important for Americans to understand that turning our country towards a future that embraces renewable energy sources and care for the environment is truly the only way we get to have a future, at all. These changes, if implemented properly, don't have to be a scary thing. They aren't going to ruin the beauty of the place we call home and they aren't going to leave people behind. We can do this in a way that supports jobs, supports communities, and supports the environment. The Green New Deal is working towards that future, which we need so desperately. Our country has made big changes in the past, and we have thrived from them. Let's do it again today, for ourselves and for our home. - Caitlin Alexander
