“I just want to draw all the time,” Rose Jaffe. ⁠

Rose is an artist and activist in Washington, D.C. Growing up in DC, Rose was aware of the political weight and context of culture and daily life—her dad is a writer for Washingtonian magazine, and Rose did political cartoons in high school. As the city has morphed and shifted, the marks and effects of gentrification are visible both through the neighborhood transformation and realtors’ use of terms like “up and coming” to describe an area. She has made a conscious decision to live in and engage with the city, and is continually activated by social and political questions. ⁠
