FFWD sketches

FFWD cover thumbnail sketches re: damage to lands around CFB Suffield due to oil development.

I particularily like the two owls carrying the stretcher in the background...

Settled a showdown sketch, which was developed from the cowboy image, the animals in the stretcher sketch and oil rigs drawn with the tablet:

A less confrontational sketch was suggested:

I liked the rough and loose brushwork on the oil rigs, and used them in the final drawing.

Illustration Friday: Discovery

Hey IF folks!

Illustration Friday's word this week is "Discovery". Haven't drawn with pencil in a while...

Just moved last month, and cleaning is under way in the new home. Under (what is apparently 5 years of) dust above a window casing in the masterbedroom...a men's wedding band. Interesting, mysterious and disgusting...the best kind of discovery.
