Nolite te bastardes carborundorum

I just recently finished reading The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. It’s a fantastic dystopian novel about what happens in America when an extreme right movement takes over the country and women lose all of their rights. Sound earily familiar?  I highly recommend the book if you haven’t read it.

“Nolite te bastardes carborundorum” is a saying found carved in a room by the main character of the book. It translates to “don’t let the bastards grind you down.” Words we can all appreciate right now.


Here is the time lapse drawing:
