Artist statement: "I'm choosing to show multiple images that came to mind from the little boy's letter to illustrate as many parts of his daily life as possible. So few people (including me) understand what children and their parents are going through on a daily basis, so illustrating as many of those points as possible helps portray their circumstance, I hope. I think the part of the letter that hit me the most is the idea of not being able to control what is happening, not knowing when they will be able to leave, and the cramped feeling of all of these conditions on top of each other. The conditions are all a part of the screwed up situation. All a part of the same torture. I want [people] to get a sense that there is not a lot of freedom of space, choice, or room from this child's point of view. From the letter, I got a sense of that this child is feeling overcrowded, watched, ordered, and controlled; all in a very small space." -Robert Trujillo (@robert_tres)
Excerpt from corresponding letter: "They go through our drawers just like a prisoner. Sometimes they treat us with kindness, but other times they don't treat us well due to the fact that some are good and others are angry." (to see actual handwritten letter, visit: bit.ly/efdletter2)
