Contention

August 18, 2014

A website called Political Violence at a Glance has recently posted an article by a colleague of mine named Christian Davenport, a political scientist at the University of Michigan. I’m currently collaborating with him on a project entitled Contention that explores our perception of how protest works through comics. One of my sketches for Contention (seen below) was used as cover art for his article, Seeing Contention in Black and White: Protest and Protest Policing.

Aside from my art, the article is definitely worth taking a look at at. Especially at this time while we watch a community that some of us might belong to (I grew up just 60 miles outside of Ferguson) divide on our TVs and Facebook streams.
