"Everybody! Make Some Noise"

Took me forever to finish this
Top pic is the finished results
the first try was so fucking bad
that I had to wipe it out of this earth
Redoing this twice was like hell
cause it's 36"x 30" the biggest art work I've ever done
Changed my topic too
from femintst to the China and Taiwan Panda issue (Trojan Pandas)
but after 2 weeks
I'm Ready for the show
1st stop is NYC "Everybody! Make Some Noise."on March 10th
This show is "inspired by the Protest Sign."
The content has no political constraints. just at least reflect the idea or spirit of the act of protest.
There's gonna be designers, illustrators, painters, live puck band and DJ etc, so this should be really eclectic and fun!
