Protest



This week, a quickie.  I went to a bridal shower earlier today for my niece - Magnum's sister's daughter.  Came home in time to get an Illustration Friday fix for the prompt "protest".

So I did this pencil sketch of a Guy Fawkes mask, popularized as a symbol of protest in the freedom fighter movie, V for Vendetta.  Didja see it?  The movie?

It was a dark, heavy, but good movie (IMO) based on a graphic novel.

I had fun drawing this smiley face of freedom, but it seemed quite a contrast from my activities earlier in the day that were all bright, flowery, lovey dovey.

I have no protest against bright flowery lovey dovey.

  2. Fantastic illustration. I watched V some time ago and got it from my son as a gift. Pretty neat movie. An interesting part for Queen Amidala.

  4. I haven't seen it... but of course, now I want to. I'm sure it's not on the Netflix. Nothing good is. But I'll find it.
