Kerschbaumer Portrays “A Nobody”

[ Posted: Jan 25, 2021 ]


January 6 of this year will no doubt stay in America’s memory for some time after the violent storming of the United States Capitol, which claimed several lives and left people with feelings of fear, surprise, disgust, and quite possibly, for a very small minority, pride.

Illustrator Julia Kerschbaumer, who recently created her own portrayal of the now (in)famous picture of a man sitting at House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s personal desk, had this to say: “I see a slight problem with showing some of the Capitol rioters in the news posing as victors or heroes. They had their 15 minutes of fame. But I think it’s important to make clear, that they are not heroes. They are some poor, random nobodies.”
