So I had totally planned to write up an entry about DOCTOR WHO today and then last night happened. I can’t write an entry about Doctor Who within hours of Osama Bin Laden finally being found and killed. I won’t bore you with my feelings on the issue beyond “Yay! Woooo!”, I figure everyone’s got their own thoughts and most are offering them (some of mine are probably still in the Twitter feed on the right of this blog). Instead I thought I’d post two pieces of artwork. The first is the painting I was working on the morning of September 11th 2001. So when anyone asks where I was on September 11th, my answer is down in the art department at Sacred Heart University, working on my first watercolor painting.
Either later that same semester or early the next, 9/11 became part of the curriculum. In my Graphic Design class, we were given an assignment to create a 9/11 memorial stamp. A lot of students were focusing on the Towers, I wanted to do something different.
