"I made this poster in the aftermath of the election because I feel powerless, defeated, afraid; don't know what to do but want to help. So many people are feeling scared and stunned and have no idea what's going to happen to them in the next 4 years. Wearing safety pins (copying the movement in Britain after the Brexit vote) is a symbol of solidarity with Women, People of Color, Immigrants, LGBTQ people, Religious minorities, and others facing discrimination, targeted violence, and hate mongering. I am donating all proceeds I receive from the sale of this print to the ACLU or similar group. Please help me in this fight, I can't do it without you." -Liza
Liza is a Graphic Designer and artist living in Charlotte, NC. She has always been a passionate little art lover and project enthusiast. Not to be discouraged by her very first drawings of gross anatomical displacement, where arms grew out of heads, she honed her technique only to find that arms can grow out of heads. Always turning to art for expression, she is inspired by too much to note, but a few influences include the culture and fashion of the 60s, American post-punk posters, Eastern European poster art, and cats everywhere. Drawn to the nonsensical, playful, and surreal, Liza insists on work being fun.
Power to the Poster seeks poster designs that are catalysts for change. They challenge where we've been and set a course for where we could go. It is our hope we add to the dialogue of what is next for America and the world. Take a side, be the change and inspire action.
