We're Not All Alike: Update

My colleague and friend, Christian Castro, showed me an article written by Luis J. Rodriguez titled, We're Not All Alike.  In his article, Rodriguez explains how it is impossible to categorize Latino voters into one category since there are so many different backgrounds and beliefs.  Anyway, Christian challenged me to create an illustration for the article without having seen the original placed within the article.  Of course I agreed and came up with two solutions.  I am currently in the final stages of the first.

Here is a peak at my progress--more updates soon!

This was my first time going to a Draw-A-Thon.  It's been a while since I pulled an all-nighter and I was once again reminded why I avoid it.  During the hours that I WAS productive, this is what I got done.  For those who don't know, the Draw-A-Thon is an event where you draw from live models from 7pm to 7am.  Some rooms included poses from 1 minute to 7 hours!  

It was fun seeing some of my former classmates from school and catch up with friends.  The best feeling was getting out there at 7am, with fresh drawings in my bag, some awesome sleepy friends and a mission to find some tasty breakfast... ok, and maybe one more cup of caffeine to get myself home.  Looking forward to going again next year!
