In February 2018, Donald Trump informed the Pentagon that he'd like to have a military parade in Washington, DC, "just like they did in France." But, this was not about honoring our military and the brave soldiers who have put their lives on the line for our country, as Trump stated. In fact, many in the armed services are against it. In reality, this parade was to massage Trump's ego. It was the pinnacle of his narcissism (to date). The millions of dollars that will be spent to put on this spectacle could be used to help the many Americans who need our help. It could help the many homeless veterans who need shelter. Make no mistake, this was Trump's folly.

The posters in this series reflect the conflicts the American political system has been experiencing during the turbulent period between 2010-2018. They are meant to encourage an exploration and a dialogue about the cultural minefield we now find ourselves in.
