Illustration Friday: The Tough on Crime Skeleton

"Said the Tough on Crime Skeleton - Tear Gas the Mob"
"Brigade" is an unusually macabre theme coming from Illustration Friday this week.  Coincidentally, these past few weeks have seen brigades of armed Police in riot gear swooping down the streets of our nation in response to the first ever GLOBAL Protest in the Occupy Movement.


These largely peaceful protests are scaring the Upper Class and Big Business's hand in our Government because they are reaching beyond the control of the main stream voice in Big Brother.  Despite little press coverage or acknowledgement in its first month, the movement became a world-wide phenomenon with Occupy groups springing up in over 80 countries across the planet.  Of course, the spin doctors are at work and justifying the unconstitutional removal of these protesters across the country the past few weeks as our Government shows its strong arm by beating, tear gassing, pepper spraying and arresting over 1,000 citizens here in the US, Canada, Australia and Europe. Occupy is exposing the corruption of our Government by Wall Street.  Occupy is exposing the Police State you really live in.  Occupy is here to stay and keep pulling back the curtain and lifting the veil and nudging open your third eye.

My featured illustration this week is from my Ballad of the Skeletons series inspired by Allen Ginsberg's poem of the same name.  I have shared a few of these works through Illustration Friday and you can Click HERE to see a stream of ALL of my entries from this year!

  1. Great minds think alike. I wrote about the Occupy people too. Hopefully something good will come out of it!

  3. This is a really cool illustration. Neat armor style. As for the Occupy movement, I fear it will remain a scattered thing that is easy for the people with all the money and power to quell unless it gets a charismatic leader or three. But I fear the example that might be made of them, also. The whole thing is hopeful and depressing at the same time.

  4. I think it's important and bringing the dangers to our freedom to light Cindy. One of the biggest things is that they HAVE been made an example of now so maybe more people will take it seriously. The United Nations announced this weekend their inquiry into why our Government isn't protecting the Constitutional Rights of the Protesters. Thanks as always for your feedback gal!
