I began my MFA on September 12th, 2001. Our techniques teacher had us create a book about the events of 9/11. Understandably, the color and tone of these pieces is darker than much of my work. I based my book on a poem written by a good friend of mine. (No political statements here; not trying to bum y'all out; just showcasing different illustration techniques...). The teacher pointed out to us that as illustrators, we'd have to cover current events. A good lesson.

Here are a few of those illustrations, with their corresponding lines from the poem.  The one above used transfer technique: "The children played and went to school..."

 Ink/bleach technique: "Then came the evil..." 

Colored pencil on black sandpaper: "...the rape of our peace."
