"Francisco Reyes Jr. and I have been working together for several years now, and we frequently talk about politics and social issues. When Cisco presented the concept of the Disruption and Disorder series as a possible collaboration, I immediately loved the power of the symbols used to call out the villains and their tactics. As America has moved toward a corporatocracy, the tactics of politicians like Trump and many corporations to brazenly undermine fact, science, and reasonable debate by spreading chaos and disinformation to advance their own agendas over the well-being of the public has become even more pervasive. When greed, disinformation, and indifference become the status quo, it is time to dissent. I really enjoy illustrating skulls and fire, so this art as a small act of dissent was a bit of visceral therapy. Cisco and I are both intensely frustrated with the state of politics, and I’m glad we were able to collaborate and bond with a bit of artistic resistance!" – Shep
