This iPad drawing in Fifty Three Paper from a couple of months ago was animated by a fascination I’ve had with the notion of loyalty as the glue that bonds followers or subscribers to both a.) whatever and/or whoever they hold dear as well as b.) their like-minded, fellow followers. Who better than the Koch brothers using Elmer’s Glue with their own bare hands to assemble their followers, I thought, to illustrate this? When the unidimensional adhesive cures, you’ve got yourself something like solidarity, an exclusive affinity group, a virtual gated community of sorts; it’s the basis of culture without all the messy pluralism and diversity.
