In the first 24 hours following Donald Trump’s election as the next president of the United States, the response among many who’d hoped and voted for a different outcome was mostly numbing and immobilizing shock. But in the following 24 hours, shock turned turned to anger and determination, a galvanizing desire to fight for change and a better world than the one that President-elect Trump plans to create. Tens of thousands took to the streets around the country, many concerned citizens planned actions and events in the days, weeks, and months to come, and many artists went back to making art — saddened, certainly, but also emboldened rather than defeated.

Well I got a reason to do street art again. Daily acts of continuing a conversation. The tension in the air is palpable as we brace for what will come next. I am finding it difficult because there are people I know that I am sure voted for T but they also are friends or family. I have a kid with special needs, we have lots of friends with children with special needs. I find it difficult to stomach talking to these people who are supposed to care about us and our children and yet can get behind a man that openly makes fun of the disabled. #streetart #postelection #text #art #streetart #brooklyn #ny #usa #elbowtoe #bully #bullyculture

Morning coffee vibe. Not sure which Anti-Trump project to work on first in studio today so i can clock out at a normal hour and get back to manhattan in time to scream my face off for another couple hours. Where’s the party tonight? Lemme know- cause I just woke up. #notourpresident Last night, I saw a sign that read “TOMORROW THERE WILL BE MORE OF US”.
