Illustration Friday - Clumsy

some clumsy shading here though I like to think it was deliberate, and definitely a clumsy attempt to make this picture fit the topic

Illustration Friday - Confined

I originally did this pastel from a photo I took at Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo, I eliminated the cage bars for my pastel. For this topic I put them in using Gimp. I have mixed feelings about zoos, on one hand it's great to see th animals close up, on the other hand they are often confined to rather small areas

Illustration Friday - Renewal

I had a hard time thinking of an image for this so I did a few Internet searches and discovered a pagan symbol for renewal, the eagle. Apparently for the celts the eagle symbolized renewal, courage and intelligence and teaches how to rejuvenate and renew one’s life.
