Thoughts & life experiences of a Chicago area graphic artist

When Globalism was Ascendant...

I came across this illustration I created for an article in 1985 about the phenomenal "We Are the World" charity event and hit song.

It had enormous media coverage and participation by top musical celebrities. Can you recognize some of the faces I illustrated as caricatures in the art?

This was a time when 'Globalism' was not a dirty word. The event fostered a sense of responsibility for needs of people suffering on the other side of the world from one's own safe place.

We'll return to those priorities one day.
