Hello all you beautiful troublemakers

Since high school (which was in the early 1980s if you must know), I’ve been drawing comics, painting, writing, organizing, handing out unreadable leaflets on streetcorners, and a bunch of other stuff like a chicken with my head cut off, in the pessimistic hope (if ya know what I mean) that I may contribute in some small way to humanity’s struggle against being wiped out by capitalist psychopaths who don’t mind setting the world on fire in the pursuit of profit. So far I don’t see much of a difference with anything any of us have been doing, but you never know how things will turn out.

I was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and thus have a little extra special affection for the plants and animals who persist on living in this (still) amazing and unique bioregion, so these appear in my work more often than not.

Some of my work here is for sale (I do need to eat), and some is free or “pay-what-you-choose” (I do like to spread rebellion). If you want to add one of my images to a flyer or newsletter or website you’re putting together as your own part of our generally common fight against exploitation and ecocide, feel free (you don’t need to ask).

Thanks to a bequest from my friend Eric, I opened an art studio with my partner Chris in downtown FtL. We both have artwork for sale there also, and offer classes and space for others to make art as well.

In love and rage,

Stephanie

Here’s a recent drawing when I was peeved about the constant pressure to be positive and “nice”. I need to ask: am I the only one who HATES the “praying hands” gratitude emoji?
