This image is based on a series of posters published by the American government in order to change certain behaviors of the citizens surrounding the use of natural areas, and it’s not the first time I’ve created work by remixing propaganda. I did so twice for my series about the American experience in 2008, here and here.

For more about the making of this particular remix, watch this vlog. Only you is part of a series of painted drawings that I created to illustrate my book about why I don’t copyright my art.
