EWOK MSK – Ironlak Studio

January 14 2017 . 07:38pm

American artist EWOK (MSK, HM, Ironlak Family) creates a vibrant illustration at the Ironlak Studio in Brisbane, Australia. Ironlak Pump Action Paint Markers were used to create all the outlines and finer details – with Sugar Artists’ Acrylic spray paint putting down the background fades and base layers through a series of hand cut paper stencils. An interesting insight into EWOK’s process in the studio and techniques he uses to create unique yet iterative works on paper.

#NoDAPL

November 01 2016 . 08:21pm

 

As you probably know by now, the Standing Rock Sioux have been engaged in a protest against the construction of the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline, which will destroy sacred sites, and pose a huge ecological risk that extends to potentially poisoning their water supply. There’s a lot that’s fucked about this situation, including the social and racial dynamics surrounding its approval, the arrests of hundreds of peaceful protesters and the geo-targeting of prayer camps by the Morton County Sheriff’s Department via Facebook check-ins (which is probably why you’ve seen all your friends checking in). But it’s also been difficult to figure out how to help activists and show support for the protest, thanks to what many are calling a media blackout by several major news networks. So in lieu of traveling to North Dakota to protest alongside the Standing Rock Sioux, we’ve rounded up five of the most effective ways of helping the #NoDAPL protestors right now.

Donate money and supplies to the Sacred Stone Camp

You can contribute money to the protester camp’s official GoFundMe account, which will go toward purchasing water, food, propane, blankets and other supplies. Checks, cash or supplies (an extensive list of what they need is here) can also be sent through the mail to:
Sacred Stone Camp, P.O. Box 1011, Fort Yates, ND 58538

OR

202 Main Street, Fort Yates, ND 58538

Alternatively, you can also supplies via the group’s Amazon WishList.

Donate to the Standing Rock Sioux

The Standing Rock Sioux are currently soliciting donations for legal, sanitary and emergency purposes. You can either donate via their PayPal account or by mailing checks (payable to Standing Rock Sioux Tribe – Donations) to:

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Attention: Donations, PO Box D, Building #1, North Standing Rock Avenue, Fort Yates, ND 58538

Donate to the Sacred Stone Legal Defense Fund

Protesters have also set up a legal defense fund to help defray the legal bills of those involved in the protests. To save the group processing fees, you can also donate directly to their PayPal account at freshetcollective@gmail.com.

Call the people in power

You can call the people who have the ability to do something.

A. Jack Dalrymple, Governor of North Dakota: 701-328-2200
B. Army Corps of Engineers (demand to reverse the permit): 202-761-5903

C. The executives at Energy Transfer Partners, the company building the pipeline.

i. Lee Hanse
Executive Vice President
(210) 403-6455

ii. Glenn Emery
Vice President
(210) 403-6762

iii. Michael (Cliff) Waters
Lead Analyst
(713) 989-2404

Sign the petition asking the White House to stop DAPL construction.

You can sign here.

UPDATE: Donate to Standing Rock’s Health Clinic

As brought to our attention by BrokeAssStuart, UCSF’s Do No Harm Coalition is setting up the Mni Wiconi (Water is Life) Health Clinic, which is a free, integrative and volunteer-based clinic that seeks to provide care to everyone in the Standing Rock Sioux reservation. They are currently raising funds to open the doors, obtain equipment and medications — an essential component of the protests as there is no local healthcare access for the people assembled at Standing Rock. Donate here.
