Words From Artist
Today is officially Earth Day. Considering that this is the only place we all have to live, I think we should treat EVERY day as Earth Day. I’m not a “wake up and grow yerrr own vegetables or die… meeeaaannn” kinda guy, but hey, it’s cool if you are. I’m mostly just a believer in keeping the earth inhabitable for future generations. We don’t need to behave like greedy, short-sighted, pigs, and we certainly shouldn’t let our corporations behave that way at our expense and their profit. I didn’t create this image for Earth Day, I made it for any day, but it fits, and while we are on the Earth Day topic, let’s not let the corporations paint our green earth black… let’s do what we can to paint our blackening earth a little more green. When I release this “Paint It Black” print, a portion of the proceeds will got to the NRDC to support responsible environmental policy. Enjoy the ambiance today, because I’ve noticed that the atmosphere here isn’t what it used to be. Let’s reverse that trend while we still can. Thanks for caring. -Shepard
