No One is Illegal on Stolen Land

By Krista Nicole

It can be easy to feel hopeless during times of humanitarian crises, but often times that hopelessness turns into apathy and complacence. I have been feeling very hopeless lately about the ICE detention centers that immigrants are being held in without trial, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying. I’m feeling hopeless about the threats from the president of deporting millions of people, and separating families. It is hard to look into the face of an administration that doesn't care about human lives if they're brown. Most of us aren't in a position to directly change laws, so the only weapons we have in this fight are our time and money.

Because of that, if you email a screenshot to artbykristanicole@gmail.com showing that you donated $10 or more to a border aid, legal aid, or immigration reform organization, I willl mail you an assortment of stickers, buttons, or other art including my “no one is illegal” sticker.

Current Project: 100 Days of Drawing

Kassandra Ramirez

By Krista Nicole

Hello Contagion Media friends and family!

This is Krista Nicole, writing my first blog post! I wanted to write a brief introduction of myself to you all, and then talk about one of my current projects. i am an illustrator and graphic designer, and because of that I consider myself both a digital and fine arts-based artist. most of my pieces are done both by hand and digitally, which gives them a unique look and feel. I’ve tried working solely by hand, as well as solely digitally, but the crossover of the two makes my art feel the most *me*. My favorite things to draw are girls and plants, but lately I’m trying to push myself out of my comfort zone and work with different subject matters.

 I recently started a 100 days of drawing prompt for myself, which I want to use to propel myself and my art into places I haven’t gone before. At the beginning of the 100 days I decided I’d stick with one color palette for the full project which is giving my art a more consistent feel than I’ve had previously. I also wrote a list of 100 things that I like to draw, which keeps me inspired and motivated throughout these 100 drawings. Speaking of which, if any of you are illustrators that struggle with finding subject matter or inspiration, I highly recommend making yourself a long list of things you like! This can serve as a reminder to yourself of why you love what you love, as well as a way to avoid staying in your comfort zone. My current list includes such things as: rotten bananas, ramen, grumpy girls, astrology, and lady gaga. Some of these are things I draw a lot, and some are things I have never drawn!

I will post more updates as i make progress on the 100 days of drawing, right now i’m finished with around 14 drawings, even though i started 30 days ago! I’m taking my time, and teaching myself to be patient with my process. Thanks for joining me!
