I can't say that I was very motivated to make art this evening. After a long and tiring day, I wasn't interested in sitting down with my sketchbook. Nonetheless, I was prepared to beging working at nearly 10:45 pm. Then a text came in asking if we had heard the news.
Osama bin Laden has been killed.
I'm not an overly patriotic person, but I am fully aware and appreciative of the country that I live in. This is a big day in the history of our nation, and I prefer to let that be at the forefront. Enjoy the self-portrait, but we should keep our eyes on the bigger issue at hand and watch how it affects our near future.
