I drew a Numberism illustration of Bernie Sanders to support his campaign. You can buy shirts and paper prints of it at the comedy benefit show, "Bern in the USA part two: Double Bern" on January 7th. 100% of the profits go to the Bernie Sanders campaign! It is drawn with some of his campaign's most exciting goals, figures on his impressive public support (from real live human beings) and words like "Bernie Sanders 2016", "Feel the Bern" and "Vote!".

About the Art:
I drew this entirely with words and letters by hand. He is drawn mostly with phrases like "Bernie Sanders 2016", "Vote", and "Feel the Bern" I also have data about his remarkable public support with over 2 million individual contributions averaging $30 each. 99% of his donations were under $250 and so far, he's raised over $41 million (recently updated to $73 Million) . That's from people like us, rather than big corporations or super PACS. We know who he's working for. As they say, follow the money.
There is also data from some of his most important issues, like raising the minimum wage to $15/hour, lowering student loan interest rates to 2.37%, creating 10 million good paying jobs through the Clean - Energy work force, which would be part of the plan to lower CO2 emissions 40% by 2020, and 80% by 2050. Raising the fuel economy standard to 65 mpg by 2025. 12 weeks paid family leave, 2 weeks paid vacation and 7 days paid sick leave. $5.5 million to youth job programs, $1:$1 gender wage equality... There may be some more in there. Prints will come with descriptions.
Feel the Bern!
Hope to see you there.
