A Monster Made in Albany

New York State’s proposed new Assembly and State Senate districts have some funny boundaries.  Leaders in Albany drew a handful of districts that look  more like the inkblots in a Rorschach test than anything else.

I was one of five artists, along with Joey Carolino, John Daly, Thomas James, Owen Sherwood and Michael Sloan, asked to interpret these stains on the electoral map for City & State. I drew the 12th Senate District which lies on the Queens side of Newtown Creek and has one of the more unique shapes–sort of like a giraffe with the head of a lion. This monster is no more scary than the process of letting elected officials choose their voters.
