This artwork was already partially designed when in August of 2019, there was another mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, just over the border from my adopted home state of New Mexico. It brought up earlier memories, the death of JFK in 1963, the University of Texas tower shootings in 1966, the Luby’s shooting in 1991, and the Santa Fe High School shooting also in 2019–all attribute to a “lone gunman” state. Texas’ motto is of course the Lone Star State. This shootings epitomize the dark side of American rugged individualism often typified by Texas.
