DEVO doll shakes his fist at Portland Demolition

My friend Michael told me about his latest art project. Not giving too much away but apparently Devo Doll is paying a visit to demo sites around Portland and waving his fist at them.
He sent me one of his photos and I made this from it. Messed up terribly on the perspective but it made me laugh a lot while sewing it out.

On this one I painted it first and then sewed over it.

It's hard to watch parts of Portland being torn down. I get the Ivy Island people in St. Johns (although I think it silly for them to fight for a piece of concrete.) I wish they'd save these trees instead.
They are being torn down on a house on a hill with the most amazing view of the St. John's bridge. It is a sad story of what happened to this property. Apparently they split it up in a most awkward way to build something right up next to it (to make mo $.) To do so they have to rip down two beautiful old trees. My guess is they could have kept that lot intact and beautiful...and made a lot more $.
