October-November 2011: Occupy drawings

This series of "Occupy" drawings are being done in support of the movement.

See first drawing finished and in progress and two other (scroll to bottom) finished drawings.

The image for the drawings emerged in my sketchbook after a trip into NYC on the evening of October 15, 2011. Reflecting the arch and the people gathering to push away the old and form something new.

Photo I took in Washington Square Park that night.
I thought I should "Occupy" with some drawings.
