For my first monotype I wanted to be loose and not constricted in ideas. The idea I decided on was a person wearing a face mask below their nose with text on the mask saying "Am I wearing this right?"
Story: I went to Sonic with my friend and the woman who came out with our food said to us "am I still required to wear a mask?" and I genuinely understood that Alabama has a whole different mind set.
I usually don't like making "political" pieces, but this situation really baffled me in that the general population is skewed into thinking that their freedoms don't have consequences. Had I been immunodeficient, the woman wouldn't have known, and thus made me susceptible to the virus. I understand that people do not like wearing face masks, seriously, I get it, it sucks. To completely disregard the health and well-being of others, and label those who follow the rules as "sheep" is selfish. There is no excuse. The lack of disregard to others, in settings that could be avoided, is inhumane. I plan on refining my monoprint more to make it visually more appealing to me, however, I really enjoyed making this piece.
Stay tuned for the update, possibly this weekend, most like on Monday :)
