Blown Covers Design Competion: My entry for the Trayvon Martin theme

This is my entry for this week’s Blown Cover design competition.  The contest asks for a sketched design idea for a New Yorker cover using that week’s theme.  The theme was Trayvon Martin.  Mine didn’t win, but I thought I’d share it anyway.

Edit:  The finished version is here.

Illustration Friday: Stripes – Image 1

Here’s an old photograph of mine for stripes.  This was taken just before they tore down the old barbershop in my hometown.  I used real black and white film and printed it myself in a darkroom.  It’s pretty old and has picked up some scratches and things. So, sorry about it’s condition.

I may put up an actual drawn-for-this-prompt illustration later this week.  I just wanted to give you all something in case I didn’t get around to drawing something new for you.  🙂
