 This series of drawings is based on newspaper images of body bags from the wars in the middle east. At first, it seemed like a taboo to be drawing dead, wrapped bodies, but the drawings stand as both witness and protest to war.

“Let’s be the same wound if we must bleed.

Let’s fight side by side, even if the enemy

Is ourselves. I am yours, you are mine.”

––Tommy Olofsson

“I’m not interested in who suffered the most.

I’m interested in People getting over it.”

––Naomi Shihab Nye
