As night falls, protestors settle down on pavements and roads, bathed in the glow of street lamps. They are surrounded by umbrellas, flowers, banners, clothing, placards, tents, all a bright yellow. Yellow has been the symbol of pro-democracy protests in countries like Hong Kong and Malaysia, where I live, in the past ten years. Though change is often frustratingly out of reach, and the barriers to better and more egalitarian governance may seem immovable, seeing people come together is still a cause for hope.
This illustration delves into the troubled past of America told through the color Navajo White. Navajo White is the color of the flag of the Navajo nation but was also a standard interior paint color in American homes from the 1970s-90s. This illustration explores the relationship between these houses and the stolen land that they are built on, tied together by a delicate cream color despite a violent and tragic history.
