Batch of ‘centaur’ sketches with only one actual horse-butt in the lot, but eh close enough. I think I got this phase mostly out of my system, whew. Good exercise in painting skin/fur and speedsketching though.
"Disability activists abandon their wheelchairs and mobility devices and crawl up the 83 stone steps of the U.S. Capital Building demanding the passage of the American with Disability Act, March 12, 1990."
I feel like there is a trend where photos of monumental moments in civil and human rights are presented in black and white, which really distracts from the reality that this happened less than 25 years ago.
This is a fucking badass demonstration and to present fighting ableism as something that happened a long long time ago is really just not reality.
