Calendar of Sorrow; American Gun Violence


United States of America 2015 gun violence Calendar of Sorrow 
Every person killed or wounded has a family that loves them and are crushed by the violence. The sorrow is exponential. Each heart with an X symbol represents someone who died, each red X symbol someone who was wounded, and each tear symbol a parent. Though there are far, far more people feeling sorrow for all these terrible life crushing events than shown here.

  1. Wow, that illustration really demonstrates how major gun violence is in the US. Is this your drawing? Was it done for a client?

  2. Yes, this is a drawing I did with the data from http://shootingtracker.com/wiki/Mass_Shootings_in_2015 I am so sad for these families and communities. I hope that the by including the parents, as represented by the tears, a small bit of the sorrow is visualized.
