Mother Mary Jones

“Wherever she went,” Sinclair Lewis wrote of Mary Harris "Mother Jones", “the flame of protest leaped up in the hearts of men.” She said to "Pray for the dead and fight like hell for the living."

Mary Jones is a sort of hero of mine. Not perfect, but she fought injustices with such a fire in her belly and for such a long time, that it's hard not to put her on a smidgen of a pedestal. 
(To read a tiny bit about it, swing by this Patreon blog.)
The original watercolor portrait of her is in now the collection of a special Patreon patron, after an exclusive Patreon giveaway.
Prints and merch of this wc portrait are available on Redbubble and Society6. (Which I think has free shipping today.)
They have been moving this week, for some reason. That makes my little agitator heart smile.

"Sit down and read. Educate yourself for the coming conflicts." -Mother Jones
