Sorry for the silence. I've been busting my boot-wah on some tight deadlines. And I just finished up a series of illustrations for a show at Big Car Gallery this Friday (all you locals should come!). Recently I watched the Iranian film called "Rang-e khoda" or "The Color of Paradise" in English. So beautiful. So heartbreaking and so uplifting at the same time. It's about a blind boy who wants nothing more than to live in his small village with his family, but his father is ashamed of him...thinking no woman will marry him if he has a blind child to care for. Needless to say, it left a huge impression on me. And I decided that I needed to do something about it. So I did a series of four images based on the film. Check out the Gallery Section (second row of squares) to see the results. And come to Big Car if you need to see them in person (they are much better in person...lousy scanners...).
Here's the flyer for the upcoming Big Car show:
I hope to see you there!
