Gaza Mon Amour

6 years ago, I designed a street poster in opposition to Israel’s “Operation Cast lead”, and in support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. In 2010, I helped to launch Imaging Apartheid, the poster project for Palestine, which also included a silkscreen version of the poster, printed by Jesse Purcell of Just Seeds. Over time, the poster design and the project have expanded their reach, and I’m proud that my contributions have brought visibility to the cause of Palestinian liberation.

But as bombs rain down on Gaza yet again, I’m frustrated, angered, and saddened beyond words… and I’m frustrated that an image I created of bombs and blood needs to be printed over and over, again and again. So, in doing what little I can, I’ve quickly designed a new poster (with lettering by Laura Sirois), to express that outrage in a different way, to add to our images of resistance and solidarity, and to simply express a desperate love.
