Here is the fourth in a series I’ve been calling, alternately, ‘Don’t see, don’t speak‘ or (informally, and more frequently) ‘The Red Hand of Shut It‘.
Symbolically speaking, it’s about being lied to and/or being silenced— not having a voice. Or, I guess, any nature of marginalization or suppression, whether personal or on a larger scale. It needs expanding. (Let’s talk about war; it’s Memorial Day Weekend.)
I began with the pencilling Friday evening and finished with watercolor Sunday. Below are images showing the process if you’re interested.
I’ve been asked by several folks if these are available. First two were done in my Moleskine sketchbook, so those are mine forever. However! I’m gonna make giclée prints available on my Etsy shop, so keep an eye out. Links to come.
Meanwhile, follow my drawings in short form on instagram.
