After a few years of silence the Illustrators Journal online magazine is back. There will be some noticeable changes especially in this new Spring Issue that explores art and politics. In light of where US politics are going, I feel compelled to jump into the fray. My resistance to the present government started with my wife and I sitting down and talking about where we might run away to to escape the government we are now facing. After much talk and consternation, (and a bit of practicality) we decided it would be better to use our collective talents to portray how we feel about what’s happening. Hence, the cover illustration of this issue and the content of the issue as well.
I’m hoping to have the zine ready within a couple weeks.
