Thank you so much to this incredible artists' cooperative for providing these amazing images to us free of charge. I'm looking forward to decorating my windows and lawn! I was a long-time friend of Chicago Wobbly artist Carlos Cortez who created some of our most memorable prints on behalf of labor and justice. When Carlos died, in his will he had donated all of his wood blocks and his press to the National Museum of Mexican Art under one condition--if a print ever became so rare that it began commanding a large price, the Museum is obligated to do a large enough run to bring the price way down. How's that for a punch in the face of capitalistic greed? I see the Just Seeds effort here as in that same spirit, and I'm grateful.

These are some of the best artwork for posters I've seen. The more novel one seen around the Capital are quite funny. Plenty are on Facebook. I am sharing your link and hope to see some of yours in the constant demonstration.

As we use to say in the 1970's, "Right on!"

This is awesome stuff. Great work. I'll pass this around.
I am an artist from Ohio, where as I'm sure you know we're facing similar legislation from our Lehman Bros. exec. - turned Governor.

On a very similar note, I am trying to collect used protest signs from the protests in Wisconsin -- I know this website is specifically for downloading images for later use in posters, but if anyone has some used signs that have already been worn in at protests so far, and wouldn't mind getting in touch w/ me, here's my intent:
I'm trying to collect used and worn protest signs for an installation in an upcoming gallery show I'm curating in Ohio. The exhibition opens in April and will feature painters, sculptors, photographers and other artists addressing themes of Labor-Management issues, definitely touching on (but not limited to) the Ohio and Wisconsin bills.
Please get in touch w/ me if you might be able to help me in collecting used signs, and please pass the info along to anyone else who might be able to help. Anything would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

I would also love to see tshirt versions of these designs, as well as the other sconnie downloadables from you guys. If I knew how I would screen them myself (as would many others, I'm sure!), but sadly that's not a skill I possess. I would gladly hand over some bux to cover costs, plus extra to either support what you do or help the recall effort or some other related & very worthy cause. At least consider it, pretty please?

Like the drawings. I will forward them to my union members in North Dakota, and all my Wis. contacts. Very Good.
