Illustration Friday: Green

I have a store on cafepress.com where I sell some of my artwork on t-shirts and journals and stuff like that. Business was pretty slow, so I decided that in order to drive a few more people to my humble little store, I would do some designs for political bumper stickers and stuff, in the hopes that it might send a little business my way. Barack Obama is big right now, and there are scads of designs for him. The two gals in the Green Party, however, had only a paltry sprinkling of designs, so I decided to do some for them.
Now personally, I am a registered independant, which is apparently the scariest kind of voter, as no one seems to know which way the independants will lean, making politics just a little more interesting in the season to come. Which is a good thing, as the situation couldn't get much worse. And while I have no idea what the Green Party stands for, I live for the day I see one of my buttons on someone on the street. I got pumped up enough to draw someone in green pencil. It's a scary departure for me, and who knows where it will lead. You can see some of my political designs at CafePress.com
And prepare for a long political season.

Oh, you've done a wonderful job here. It's a little bit creepy. I don't know why. I think it has to do with the mugshot quality of his pose. That with the combination of it being on the tinted paper. There's a nostalgia there that for me recalls wanted posters. Nicely done.

I think you could do lovely drawings on any ground using any form of mark making tool. I can't wait until you get your hands on a bulldozer. Andy Goldsworthy, watch out.
