FRESH WORK -- "Cope with Lost Hope"

So now that the craziness in my life has somewhat subsided, I've built up enough inspiration and creative energy to make new work.  Which means, expect regular updates on the blog, again.

I have so many ideas, I didn't know where to start.  So today I went with what I already had started on, not only to get things moving quicker, but also pick something that is relevant and useful now.  This is about Obama's time at the White House so far and how some that once saw him as an inspirational figure, don't hype him up as much as they used to.  I won't go too in depth with this, but I mean, give the guy some credit, its a tough time to be president of the United States, you know?  Nonetheless, its been a rough year for the country and sometimes even Obama is not enough to give the people "Hope."  Anyway, everyone has their own opinions and this just illustrates one side of the coin.


 
Mixed media, mostly digital for this one

This is proof that you don't need to show a facial expression to express emotion. Good job. I've always been a fan of silhouettes in illustrations. Nice banner btw.
