This is the sketch for my first post, The Apple Grove. I made the illustrations faster back then, and skipped the more finished pencil version.
The story is a about private property. Private property and national frontiers are more important in this world than human lives. Why?
Since the birth of early civilization, when private property emerged, it has dominated the world. The wealth of the rich, the power of the powerful. With the currant global system private property has become more sacred than ever, although there are practically no rational arguments why it should be like this.
The greed of a few is defended at the cost of hunger for the many, protected by laws made by leaders falsely justified by votes won by economic superiority.
Isn’t it time we tried something new?
