September 11, 2001 – Ten Years Later

September 11, 2011
Black Guache on Cold Press
Ten years ago I was assigned to create an illustration in reaction to the events of the September 11th attack on the United States.  I was at a complete loss.  There was no clever way to sum up that day.  There was only reaction to a living nightmare.  Sky promising and threatening.  World familiar and foreign.  Heart full of fear and resolve.  Hurt and love.
