LOVE IS AN INFINITE RESOURCE
In February 2018, I made a comic for “The Heart Show” at the Beatnik Lounge in Joshua Tree, organized by Stella Ru and Bruce Carleton. In the comic, I described an activity I’d once done with my students where we sent love out into the world – to individuals and groups, alive or dead, real or imaginary, people we know and also people we've never met. As I told them, “Don’t limit yourselves, love is an infinite resource!”
In February 2020, I was thinking about this comic. I had just started a printmaking class at my local community college, but within a few weeks in-person classes were cancelled. I had learned a little and bought a few supplies so I continued practicing at home. As the pandemic intensified, I found myself returning to this concept and started carving block hearts.
I have been printing these hearts to send out into the world – to offer love and appreciation to individuals and groups, and also to raise funds for Mutual Aid Joshua Tree. The small hearts and words are always free, with an option to make a donation toward local mutual aid groups.
