I hadn't realized until just now, but this makes a pair with the one below:
The Hero, 2009, silverpoint on prepared ground, 11" x 8.5". Highlighted with white pencil.
This drawing was a much easier journey than the one below. The title, "The Hero" is somewhat ironic, as there is a sense of cruelty in the image. It also has a social realist feel to it, which I didn't intend to happen, but it did.
