This is a collage (US Currency on a vintage book cover) that I created to donate to:
Spread the Word” • An Art Auction Benefiting 826LA. I felt that is was about time that Pepper Spray Cop should brutalize protestors in an original artwork.
Please attend, it looks like its shaping up to be an incredible evening. You can buy tickets here.
