Send in the Drones

Pakistan is criticizing the U.S. over the recent increase in 'suspected' drone attacks within it's borders.

In this Illustration I have depicted the drone plane as a bird of prey and Uncle Sam as the falconer. It's a pen and ink drawing that was colorized on the computer using Adobe Photoshop CS3.

I rather enjoyed doing this one.

Phelps and the Fallen

Yesterday's Illustration is on the subject of the case before the Supreme Court involving the family of a fallen soldier and the Pastor Fred Phelps and his church.

This is a very interesting case that pits free speech against common decency. Unfortunately I think Pastor Phelps and his followers will walk out with their freedom to picket funerals of fallen soldiers, murdered gay folks, victims of terrorism and everyone else he feels God hates completely intact.

Families who are going through unimaginable pain will have to continue to be put further trough the wringer by pastor Phelps and his followers.

These are couple Illustrations I did on the subject of bullying. Unfortunately the topic has tragically reared it's ugly head in the headlines lately.

The first Illustration deals specifically with the use of computers and technology that bullies employ to harass and torment their targets.

The second piece of artwork focuses more on the intolerance of difference. In the case of a couple tragic stories over the last couple of weeks that difference was the fact that the young victims were gay.

These stories are nothing new and I wish I knew the answer on how to end it. I can only pray for the day when these particular Illustrations will no longer be relevant.
