A Climate Change Rally in San Jose, California, April 29, 2017

On Saturday, April 29, I was thinking of relaxing and spending the morning with my wife. When she told me that she was getting her hair cut, I thought maybe I can ride my bike to the Climate Change rally in San Jose. From my place, it’s a short 20 minute ride.

While I was there, I met some friends from a Presbyterian Church group that I enjoy attending. They are strong advocates for the environment and I was happy to exchange hugs and catch up on what they have been doing.

I had a lot of fun taking photos of the event. Here are some of the photos I took of the Climate Change rally in San Jose, California.


About angelolopez

I’ve wanted to be an artist all my life. Since I was a child I’ve drawn on any scrap of paper I could get a hold of. When I went to San Jose State University, I became more exposed to the works of the great fine artists and illustrators. My college paintings were heavily influenced by the humorous illustrations of Peter De Seve, an illustrator for the New Yorker magazine. I also fell under the spell of the great muralists of the 1930s, especially Thomas Hart Benton and Diego Rivera. I graduated with a degree in Illustration. Since my time in college, my goal has been to be a successful children’s book illustrator. I’ve illustrated 3 books: Two Moms the Zark and Me by Johnny Valentine in 1993; Night Travelers by Sue Hill in 1994; and Cherubic Children’s New Classic Story Book Volume 2 for Cherubic Press in 1998. I’ve painted murals for Lester Shields Elementary School in San Jose, the Berryessa branch of the San Jose Public Library, and Grace Community Church in Los Altos. I’ve had a few illustrations published in South Bay Accent Magazine and I will have an illustration published in the January/February issue of Tikkun magazine.

  1. What great signs! My husband Pat rode his bike yesterday in a ride to commemorate the opening of the Rosebud Bike Trail here. He ended up on the Wichita State campus where people had booths set up to protest Rump and other such things. He said it was exhiliarating to see such activism. I wish I could have gone with him, but my bike-riding days are long gone.
