oh wow, i saw this thread a few days ago and while I thought about my answer, apparently a lot happened.
I just wanted to pipe in that I don't think my political views invade my visual art so much, but they definitely play a huge part in my writing, especially wrt sci-fi. But that's part of what sci-fi is for, not just exploring the outermost possibilities of technology, but how that technology affects those who use it.
But if I'm mostly planning on painting portraits and scenery, my political views don't much come into play, because i'm not so heavy-handed as to be a political cartoonist.
The one thing that I will actually try to put in my art from time to time calls attention to disability, I suppose.I know a hefty handful of people with various disabilities, especially my mother, and since disability is something that can happen to literally anyone, i've spent a lot of time thinking about it. When actually sketching out a scene from something set in the future, or when thinking about my own writing, I guess i like to put accessibility at the forefront, and aesthetics come after.
