A note from the Artist:
I’ve been drawing the same stuff for as long as I can remember, since before I could read or write. I was inspired by Lower East Side activist comic artists like Eric Drooker and Seth Tobocman as well as other masters like Eduardo Risso and Eric Powell.
Being from the LES, I think I’m not the only one who feels like their way of life is threatened. We are displaced, dispossessed by the resulting housing crisis from rapid waves of gentrification. That is why I made this comic (which is different from my usual sci-fi / fantasy / steampunk comics); I felt I should share my story so far, and express what the Tupac poem meant to me.
