Six Months Later

DS_20090722

One of the many things that makes reportage illustration so amazing is the idea that I can sit anywhere in the world, pull out my pen and ink, and draw. It is some strange hybrid of action drawings, happening, and plein air painting that makes the whole thing breath of life. Six months ago I found myelf in Washington, DC working once again—minus the sitting, and eventually the ink froze, but I did get in a few drawings the day of Barack Obama’s inauguration as President. I found this one in the pile of drawings that were not posted in April.—Dominick

    He taught you well. “There may be frozen ink, frozen fingers – but get the job done, … CHANGE!
