Remarkable Miggs

Westport artist Miggs Burroughs took a photo collage posted on “06880″ yesterday — one I found on Facebook — and turned it into a simple, but very powerful, message:

Miggs Burroughs Newtown

Look.

Think.

Then pass it on.

  1. Miggs has a natural brilliance…I asked him once how he comes up with all these ideas and logos. He said he didn’t know, that he would just think about the subject and it would come to him. Nice.
    Nice guy, too.

  2. Miggs is and has always been one very special person.

    Excellent, Miggs. It is moving, literally. Let’s hope it moves the discussion on gun control forward.

  5. Brilliant, as always, Miggs!

  6. Agreed–brilliant.

    I am so impressed, Miggs – your ability to make a statement so simple, yet so compelling.

    Let’s hope we can indeed find a way to Stop the Insanity.

  9. ITS TIME TO END THE MADNESS AND MAKE MEANINGFUL CHANGES TO GUN LAWS TO PROTECT THIS NATIONS KIDS,TEACHERS,AND IN THE END ALL OF US.

  10. I would like to buy Migg’s sign as a poster and put it in my front window. Anybody looking at it will know what the insanity is to which it refers.

  11. Dan, please stop using this fantastic website to politicize the tragedy. As a Newtown resident who used to live in Westport, I visit your site every day. All of the political posturing is not what our town needs right now.

  12. Yes, a time to be silent and a time to speak…and when we speak, may it be with a powerful voice. Migg’s poster could become the icon for action on many fronts, not limited to just firearms control and better mental health services.

  13. What can you say but thank you, Miggs. Powerful.
