Occupy Art: Protesters Captured on Newsprint

Using the very newspapers where stories of the Occupy movement are being printed, self-trained UK artist Guy Denning has been doing frequent drawings of members of the 99%. Capturing the spirit of the movement, from sadness to strength and rage, his pieces on newsprint and boxes capture the uniquely global protest which continues to garner attention and raise questions about the roll of corporations in world politics. See more of this excellent artists work (including a host of non-Occupy related pieces) at Flickr or on his Facebook page.
