Once again I chose to paint while watching election coverage. Waves of fear and panic filled me all night. For a while, I started watching The Hudsucker Proxy but I kept on creeping back to the networks to see what was going on. A new day has dawned and we all have to step forward no matter who we wanted to win. What can I do? I voted. And then I got to work doing what was in front of me which was this image that has been burning in my brain for around a year now. When I did my first illustration of the turkey, I had this story in mind with these three characters. In terms of technique, I really mixed it up with this one using acrylic ink, colored pencil and digital touch ups. I'm fairly happy with the result so far!
