Illustration Friday - Flawed

For this week's Illustration Friday - Flawed I focused on how easy it is to be distracted by the interweb. These days my weakness is facebook scrabble... yours?

To make the image I combined a few sketches and added color in photoshop.

Illustration Friday - Climbing

Silhouettes of climbing vines are framing the skies around my neighborhood these winter days.

Illustration Friday - Contained

The fighting in Gaza is heavy on my mind this week. The history and complexity of the region is daunting and i realize this is just one of myriad perspectives. Illustration Friday's topic this week is "contained" and i wanted to explore the plight of the Palestinians civilians trapped in Gaza - surrounded by Israel and enduring the detriment of Hamas.

Thanks to Nidal El-Khairy for his inspirational imagery that led to this sketch.

Illustration Friday - Resolve

For this week's Illustration Friday topic "resolve" I remembered endless steps up to Coit Tower and pathways up to the Bamboo forest outside of Hana - daunting at first, but worthwhile in the end.

Illustration Friday - Clandestine

I don't usually stray into political cartoons, but I've been a little concerned lately about the "clandestine" efforts of the lame duck administration. May it all be corrected in the coming years.

Illustration Friday - Voices

This is my first go at Illustration Friday's weekly collection. Thinking about "voices," the subject for this week's challenge, i imagined the silence of the snowy Washington State mountain (where i'm spending the holidays) broken by the flutter of prayer flags whispering into the wind.
