Illustration Friday - Swamp

Not sure of the difference between a swamp and a marsh, this is loosely based on a photo of Rattray Marsh in Mississauga, Ontario

Illustration Friday - Shades

I wasn't planning to do another portrait of Tom Waits but then I saw this poster for Record Store Day http://www.recordstoreday.com/CustomPage/1304 - you need to scroll down a bit to see the poster - and then I saw the Illustration Friday topic so I really had no choice, this is a quick sketch with 2 shades of blue marker on an old piece of glossy paper I had lying around

Illustration Friday - Intention

Perhaps the greatest example of good intentions going horribly wrong was Prohibition in the US in the 1920's. It led to violence and the establishment of organized crime on a huge scale. I'm just catching up on season 2 of the excellent - though excessively violent - HBO series Boardwalk Empire starring the great actor Steve Buscemi

I wasn't entirely happy with the ink version of this so I went at it with some markers, I like this version a little better
