September 27, 2018, will be ingrained in my memory for a long, long time. It is the day of the Brett KavanaughChristine Blasey Ford Hearing. Blasey Ford accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both teenagers. This happened more than three decades ago. Personally, it was emotionally hard to watch yet I couldn’t unglue myself out of the TV set. The hearing was about listening to each side tell their story. Most viewers don’t really know the facts, so we can only make our assessment based on their performance.

For me, Dr. Ford’s testimony was an example of civility, dignity, and humanity. She was vulnerable yet firm. Kavanaugh, on the other hand, came across as an irrational, arrogant, and disrespectful person. Ford answered questions, Kavanaugh avoided giving straight answers. Just by their body language, temperament, and demeanor, it was easy to tell who was telling the truth.

I was very frustrated and had an immense feeling of helplessness at the possibility of giving someone, who displayed such ugly character, one of the most important jobs in this country. I didn’t know what to do. I thought of creating a design, illustration, or some art, but I didn’t do it.

Today, I’m sharing a selection of pieces—including illustrations, cartoons, and graphic designs—created by brave artists who actually get off their butts, picked a pencil, brushes, or got to their computers to create something. Art is therapeutic, I’m sure doing something made them feel better. Doing something makes a difference.

All of these pieces were found on Instagram, please follow the artists. This group inspires me for doing something. Enjoy!
