"The fist is best known for the Black Power movement of the 1960s in America. While it represented unity within the race, it originates back to 1930s Germany. This symbol was first used by the Communist Party in Germany. It was a symbol that the party members would display to one another to show their unity against Hitler. The current tertiary rainbow colors represent all walks of life and my belief that all people should be given equal rights. It is time that all people are treated equally in this country- not just the people in power. Hence the title, Empower Equality. Each embellishment takes about 40 minutes. The concept took about 2 weeks to tweak to perfection. Getting it printed took about 3 weeks. I've hand drawn the word EVOLVE from left to right, and right to left. EVOLVE spelled backwards is EVLOVE- many people will think I'm writing LOVE over and over again. There are multiple color ways of this marker embellishment- I estimate that EVOLVE is written around 800 times per print. " - gilf!
