An Anarchist Illustrator Looks to Radical Histories to Fight Fascism

Anarchist illustrator N.O. Bonzo produces decentralized media in a highly bureaucratic cultural landscape. Their illustrations, murals, and literature emerge in unexpected places, from the streets of Portland, Oregon, to the far ends of Reddit and Twitter, addressing relations of labor and identity in the workplace and on the streets. Growth and care are central themes…

  1. Thank you, Steven. Your work is always very thoughtful and provoking. Not only can we figure this out, but we must.

  2. Yup. We MUST figure this out. I’m a hunter and gun owner in favor of much stricter gun regulation and prohibition on ownership of most firearms. No civilian needs guns designed for warfare.

    Your piece here is thoughtful (and, per usual, lovely).

  3. Steve, why are you being such a whining twit? Your neighbors’ guns have nothing to do with the tragedy in Florida. What do you think you are accomplishing? Yes, we can work this out–but only if we consistently enforce the gun laws we have (and we have more than you know) and insist that the FBI and local law authorities respond more effectively, intelligently and ACCOUNTABLY to multiple reports regarding a specific person and his specific intentions Can you not see where the failure likes here? Frankly, Steve, I doubt both your intelligence and your sincerity. You’re telling me Parkland was your breaking point? Really? Why wasn’t Sandy Hook? Why not the Colorado theater shooting? There have been a couple of college shootings in recent years–where were you, Steve? Obviously those events were within your comfort zone, nothing to get upset about, because Parkland and only Parkland put you over the edge. And now your response is to attack your law-abiding neighbors? Have you had the courage to tell your neighbors face to face that you claim they’re part of the problem? Or are you just whining piously on Hyperallergic, waving your “sensitivity” like a flag of ineffectuality? Face it. Steve: YOU are part of the problem. You whine. You have no ideas. You offer no solutions. You know no facts. You do nothing. Or do you think your watercolors are enough?
