Exaggerated Features Black Lives Matter Cover Art by Damon Renthrope (Print)

On creation of the cover image: "Sam Wilson (the new Captain America) was my first thought. I felt that with everything happening, a peek at perspective could spur some thinking. One thought is that seeing a black man in the iconic Uncle Sam stand, finger in our face, as Cap ‘Merica, demanding of us with firm authority — it makes us see the issues from the other side, especially if we, the viewers are opponents of BLM and police reform. It helps that this character, according to Marvel, is actually Captain America, named Sam. Cap and Uncle Sam are two of America’s most “traditional” images of a white man as our leader, boss, and model. In my mind, they’re the most accurate illustrations of the “Great America” that some of us want to see again. The image of Uncle Sam Wilson forces the acknowledgement of a black man as that figure. If it bothers us, we have more thinking to do." - Damon Renthrope

A majority of the proceeds will go towards Black Lives Matter.

"#BlackLivesMatter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Inc. is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives."
