Recorded History: Melanie Reim

By Peggy Roalf   Friday February 17, 2017

Melanie Reim, New York based illustrator and DART subscriber, has been documenting the fallout of the 2016 presidential election and posting to her blog since November 9th. Covering the protests, from Washington Square, November 14th, to the Women’s March on Washington, January 22, she captures the urgency in the voices of the hundreds of thousands of people who say, “Not My President.” Monday is the day we celebrate “Our Presidents”. Have a look:


What a day. I marched in Washington DC, and was overcome with emotion the entire day. I drew my way through most of the day- walking, talking, chanting, singing, loving and smiling. Still smiling.

I am going to let my drawings do the talking. More to come.--Melanie Reim
