Illustration for Garden and Gun magazine., for an excerpt from Lee Smith's piece Marble Cake and Moonshine.
Art direction by Marshall McKinney
The art was inspired by a poem by her friend James Still
I shall not leave these prisoning hills
Though they topple their barren heads to level earth And the forests slide uprooted out of the sky. Though the waters of Troublesome, of Trace Fork,
Of Sand Lick rise in a single body to glean the valleys, To drown lush pennyroyal, to unravel rail fences; Though the sun-ball breaks the ridges into dust
And burns its strength into the blistered rock
I cannot leave. I cannot go away.
Being of these hills, being one with the fox
Stealing into the shadows, one with the new-born foal, The lumbering ox drawing green beech logs to mill,
One with the destined feet of man climbing and descending, And one with death rising to bloom again, I cannot go. Being of these hills I cannot pass beyond.
This poster was produced in collaboration with Steve Heller and the School of Visual Arts in New York.
It is hand printed letterpress from hand set wood and lead type, and a linocut. Like the RESIST poster, this piece was done to protest the travel bans.

In the show, the Overlords appear from space to banish all war, sickness and poverty on earth... but at what price? You guessed it - a terrible one!!!
I did 2 or 3 thumbnail sketches for each scenario, but the children were deemed too happy - in the show, the kids become dead eyed, robotic and slightly menacing. So the tighter sketches and the final art show the more soulless children.
