Storm Warning

Storm Warning

Digital Color, 2013

Creator Commentary

This is the cover for the comic Storm Warning. Storm Warning is about freeing oneself of systemic oppression and going on to help others who want the help. My aim with this piece was express powerfully thrashing back against constriction by using a different method of fighting. Here, the ropes constrict, but she is becoming a storm that is more powerful than the ropes she is working to escape. The method of fighting back (lightning storm) is necessarily different from the method of oppression (ropes) because the tactics employed to oppress come from a position of authority and privilege.
