In my series of drawings I wanted to illustrate the concept of being invisible in America. The method I used to create these pieces was by rewriting that phrase, “Invisible in America”. This demonstrates how a few people can be lost to the system without consequence but if multiplied it becomes an unavoidable epidemic that needs to be addressed. These portraits get lost among the background to signify how easy it is to get lost among the system and the empty promises the United States advertises.
