pray - we're
                          not dead yet
car-free prayer flags, a new twist on an ancient concept

I never quite "got" what prayer flags were about until I silkscreened this banner at Peter Bevis's crosswalk fundraiser and hung it on Steve Anderson's car-free HQ.

The repetition of the pictogram is reassuring and reinforces the idea that cities where cars are obsolete are not only possible, but necessary.

Change can happen quickly. All that's needed is a desire to change.

Awakened consciousness is the first step to positive action.

I hope that these prayer flags and the other work represented at will trigger people to really consider--and change--their automotive habits.

Fuck cars
