"Illustration Friday: Afterwards." Also, join the Barnsdall Art Park Cause and Forum

This week's "Illustration Friday" theme is "Afterwards," so I am submitting a piece I did which... well, I think (or at least hope) that it's fairly obvious the piece represents what happens after love doesn't go well.

The title of this piece is "Requiem for A Heart."



To check out more I.F. entries on the topic of "Afterwards," and last week's topic of "Spent," please go to the I.F. page: http://illustrationfriday.com/

To check out the works in color on my website, please go to: http://drawdvl.com/color-works.html.

And on an unrelated note, if you are a Los Angeles resident interested in the arts, please know that Barnsdall Art Park-- right at the city center, by the intersection of Sunset and Vermont-- is in danger of being shut, and/or privatized, which for many people would mean it would become as good as shut. Privatization means an increased cost in classes, an elitist approach, and an overall revamping of the fact that the park was meant-- and is still supposed to be-- as a public park with theatre, gallery shows, and education available and accessible to all.

This article explains a bit of what's going on: http://www.losfelizledger.com/2010/10/eastside-eye-city%E2%80%99s-budget-cuts-impact-barnsdall-park/

This website is a community based forum where you can post ideas, artwork, and make a profile. It's like Facebook, but geared specifically towards saving Barnsdall.

Happy Friday, all! Let us keep the arts alive :-)

That's what I was going for, so, yay? Lol, not really a "Yay" picture, but I hope mission accomplished ;-)
