MY DAY 38 out now

MYDAY38!.jpg

I decided to focus on Portland’s very large homeless and housing crisis for MY DAY 38. After hearing my neighborhood’s resistance to a proposed homeless shelter THEN hearing our mayor’s decision to sweep the city’s Springwater Corridor of the 500 homeless campers with few alternatives for them, I was left very confused as to the ethics and function of this city. I decided to draw some of the homeless dwellings while walking from my neighborhood to Downtown Portland. Hand printed with paper relief and letterpress. 6×5″ closed. 24pages. Available at Passages Books, Reading Frenzy, and through me. All profits from this book will go to Sisters of the Road, a barter cafe working to end homelessness. sistersoftheroad.org
