Enough: Illustration Friday topic
How much Hope is enough, anyway? Last night we went to see the movie, WALL-E, so I guess that's why I feel the need for an extra measure of hope this morning. I know 'everybody' loves the movie, but I just found it to be somewhat frightening. Especially about the horrible shape humans are in in the future! And don't tell me we're not headed in that direction! This morning's front page of our local paper says that Colorado's population is the 'slimmest' of any state in the country. But I walk down these Colorado streets, and if our population is in the best shape, I guess the rest of the country looks like those in this movie! Get movin' people!!! Give me some hope, here!
I was determined to do a sketch (at least) specifically for this week's Illustration Friday topic, so I did the one above. But I have to confess that when I saw what the topic was, I wanted to post the "Watermelon Girls" tapestry, and also this old Kansas photo that I digitally colorized... both with enough to share! So I'll just post everything!
Three images plus a rant... ¿Es suficiente?
