The Great Sinkhole

The Great Sinkhole, cover

The Great Sinkhole, is an artist book from Art Hazelwood, drawn from a year and a half of political street posters in opposition to the Trump madness. The images form a broad narrative including the GOP convention, Trump's open embrace of the fascist right in Charlottesville, the response to Hurricane Maria, attacks on public assistance and Playboy models. The Republican elephant is shackled to the president and careening towards some kind of end point, whether an end point of Trump or an end point of democracy is still in question. Volume two is immediately under way.

San Francisco Poster Syndicate at SFO protest 2016
San Francisco Poster Syndicate joins in the protests with SEIU 1021 at SFO in a national airport workers action shortly after the elections in 2016.
Much of the imagery in the book was developed from posters printed at street action––the Women's Marches, anti-fascist actions, as well as the anti-gun violence march, above. These posters were printed live by San Francisco Poster Syndicate and handed out for free. See more posters here.
