100 Expressions: Michelle Smith

Title: There’s no Freedom in Fear

Medium: Drawing - copic marker

Narrative: I drew this piece because I couldn’t verbalize what I felt. This was not long after Trump won the primaries and I was watching the reactions of his supporters. After the first 100 days, it’s that much more what the title suggests. Racial tensions have further increased and the divide between supporters and non-supporters has widened. Add to that the bombing in Syria, the alleged involvement of Russia and the threats by and to North Korea! I feel more fear for this nation than I do the once great sense of freedom.
