Being an artist I am able to use my artwork as my voice and it gives me a platform. I have never been a fan of war and I am not the most patriotic American. I feel like a lot of our government’s decisions have ulterior motives. I also don’t agree with our gun laws and think that we need to make some serious changes to those. However guns are such a powerful image and I do like to use them in my art to convey my message.
