I'm closing the Museum of Neoliberalism until further notice to avoid contributing the to coronavirus problem. The government's response has been slow and ineffectual and we can't wait for them to take the lead on this. Take care everyone. We'll reopen once things start to improve.
Just finished this mythologically seditious poster. If you're not familiar with the story, it's said that if the ravens leave the Tower of London the British Empire will fall and the monarchy will collapse.

You may remember I painted the below image last year and auctioned the original on ebay to raise money for the anti-whale hunting charity Sea Shepherd UK. It was inspired by the actual signs Japanese whalers hold up while they’re being photographed poaching whales in the South Atlantic.
But there was a problem; that charity auction was sabotaged, deliberately, and not by a pro-whaler, but by an anti-trans activist who was furious I didn’t want to talk to him about his horrible anti-trans opinions anymore.
