“RBG’s death fills me with an fear and anxiousness I haven’t felt since the last presidential election. I’m plagued with the same question – Why does it seem like evil is winning?”
I posted this to my Facebook the day after. I’d been reticent about looking at my feed or reading the news. I didn’t want to feel hopeless.
A dear friend of mine encouraged me to to take action so I didn’t feel so anxious and helpless, so I decided to make some art for the cause and donate all profits to the Biden 2020 campaign. I made my first donation last night, and let me tell you, it was therapeutic.
I only make 20% commission on Redbubble sales and I wish I could do more.
In fact, fame has never sounded so good… but not for me. I like being anonymous.
Every once in a while I make something that someone famous will respond to. I float around for a day knowing someone who’s art I admire liked something I did. It’s a good feeling.
So, it would be super awesome if a politically like-minded famous person helped promote this endeavor.
Or, if possible, I could just donate the art directly to the Biden Campaign for them fundraise with. That way they get the most bang for their buck.
Then I would know that I helped make the world a better place. Isn’t that the ultimate goal of any artist?
