Well, as you know, the election is over, and some people are happy,others not so much. There are a lot of people analyzing, pontificating, threatening, and despairing.
What the best I saw on Social Media, was an ode to what each individual can do, to contribute to the world, and keep evil in its place. So, I hope you will join me on this occasion, in whichever camp you were in, in an effort to heal the country and world, in whatever way is in your abilities.
So, I’m posting a rerun of an illustration I did for a young man. The message is pretty obvious….so, I part for the day with this:
I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday, whichever you celebrate. I’m sending good thoughts for everyone for a wonderful 2016. I’ll be presenting my worst of the year,soon, and it may include THIS:
That’s mud alright, in it’s basic boring form. When I took the photo, I was intrigued by the sculptural quality of the leaves, and the contrasting texture of the wet soil. Somehow, all this didn’t translate well into the drawing, so damn, damn, damn! All I can say is damn.
Anyway, I’m left with the question, due I pursue this more carefully in a full sized version? I do have an idea that might make it sing, and since I have no other idea giving me blinding inspiration at the moment….if I want to keep my drawing routine up, I guess I do.
So, hopefully, I’ll have an update by New Years Eve.
