Occupy Imagination by yuumei Occupy Imagination by yuumei
This my tribute painting to the Occupy movement. :D I was really inspired by all the peaceful and creative ways the occupiers were making their opinions heard, especially when the police try to clear them out, they've found ways to return in the form of tent balloons, book tents, and chalk people.

Even if you don't agree with the Occupy movement, you have to admit that they have imagination :)

Everything seen in this painting is inspired by real events that I've either witnessed first hand at Occupy Berkeley or photos of other Occupies online. Here's the links to some of those inspiration:

Tent Balloons: [link]
Book Tents: [link]
Nyan Nyan Percent: [link]
Octopi Wall Street: [link]
Occupy Dog: [link]
Chalk people: [link]

For those of you who are not familiar with the movement, it first started because there is an increasing income gap between the extremely rich and the poor. The top 1% of Americans own 50% of the country's wealth because they are able to bribe the government into creating laws that will benefit them while making the poor even poorer. Examples include the Supreme court ruling corporations as people to give companies the same protection as people.

Since then, the movement has spread to encompass a wide variety of issues such as free education and racial equality. This doesn't make the occupiers disorganized and they haven't lost their original cause. It simply means that a lot of the issues such as rising education costs and racial segregation through income gap all have the same underlining cause due to the increasing corporate control of our government.

Never before has the plague of Stupidity reigned in America's streets. Ignorance, feelings of entitlement, and a refusal to obey the Law is all these people know. They're better off in Antarctica than polluting our country with their inanity.

Your work has been suggested for DD!

I have never heard of this movement before, but I can only stare in amazement at the rampant imagination.
