This is a reworking of an over 20-year-old design. The original illustration was made as a stencil for protest signs at an anti-prison rally in Denver, CO in 1996. I rejuvenated the design for the first Justseeds print portfolio, Voices from the Outside, back in 2008.

Printed at Brightspot in Brooklyn, NY.
