#BringItHome is a piece in support of Andrew Gillum’s Florida gubernatorial 2018 campaign. Max was a huge fan of Andrew Gillum’s very positive, inviting campaign. Much so that he decided to create a portrait piece of Gillum in his support. “#BringItHome” is the hashtag that Gillum used to promote his campaign, inspired by a story from his childhood. Max used that hashtag as the name and slogan on the piece. The style of portrait of Gillum himself was inspired by his previous A-R-E-T-H-A portrait. Unlike Aretha, Max did not think Gillum should blend in with the background, to make Gillum look “front and center.” Instead of blue, the background was painted yellow, so Gillum would not blend in.
