The butterfly includes a human profile, to uplift the resiliency, courage, and determination of migrants who come in search of their dreams.

  6. Work Connects Us All 
This piece was commissioned by the AFL-CIO national workers union in 2013 to both celebrate May Day and demand immigration reform for the over 11 million undocumented migrants living in the United States. The phrase, “Work Connects Us All,” was part of a larger campaign by the AFL-CIO that sought to expand national awareness about the divide between the 99 percent and the elites. Efforts in some states to take away rights of working people to come together in unions have given rise to a growing recognition of the bonds shared by working people.
This piece was distributed by the thousands in a number of major cities throughout the United States at pro-migrant rallies. I secured a few copies of the poster before they ran out.

  7. THe Illusion of Control Part 2

This print is part of the Illusion of Control series.

Many of us have the illusion that we can control everything in our life. But we don’t. In fact, I believe it’s important to let go of the belief that we do.
 
When I was working on this piece, I was encouraging myself to be experimental and to take risks, even when I did not know the outcome of the piece. The image is my reflection on life at that moment, and is a statement on being present, being free, and giving up control. The background of the piece is a monotype.

  14. Today, the National Education Association is launching their campaign “Dreamers Welcome.” They’re asking community to share my newest Butter Fly design. 
The inspiration for this design was to stand in solidarity with dreamers and for them to know that there is a community of people who care and stand with them. Their story is a beautiful and positive story, of resiliency of the human spirit.And starting today, NEA is hosting a national call-in day (1-866-632-6057) to encourage educators and others to call their senators and encourage them to support DREAMers, their families and the comprehensive bill. Please share this image with all of your friends and family !! 1 year ago
  15. For this years Netroots Nation in San Jose, I’m going to be on a panel discussion called: Artists for Justice: How Artists are Transforming the Narrative on Immigration and Equality. If you’re at NN this year, be sure to come by the panel and keep an eye out for other events I’ll be hosting with Culture Strike through out the weekend. 
"The migrant rights movement is rich with artists and producers who are producing culture that reach audiences beyond the bounds of what community organizing and policy-based organizing can do. Visual artists, designers, coders, rappers, emcees, street artists, musicians, poets and performers are increasingly working together to form a cultural front that speaks out for a fair and just immigration policy. From theater productions to creative online apps to the use of the monarch butterfly symbol, art is a powerful and undeniable tool in the migrant struggle. Come hear how organizers and artists are employing cultural strategy and online tools to activate innovative art that shifts hearts and minds around immigration. We will discuss case studies and successful models of cultural organizing and cultural strategy."  1 year ago
