the artist, originally uploaded by Rob Carey2.

March 11, 2011. Here's a new drawing with a recycled theme from 2008, when I drew the shopping cart lady crossing the street in Lyon. This time it's an artist on his way to show his work. I prefer the top image, as that's the way I envisioned it from the start. Like everyone, I am stunned by the images of the earthquakes and tsunami waves in Japan today, and feel terrible for those who are suffering. Our prayers and thoughts go out to those who are impacted by this disaster.

Such a wonderful and atmospheric drawing. I iagined him as an illustrator dejectedly doing the rounds of art editors in the days before email and all the rest.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful sketch again and your thoughts on the disaster in Japan. Let's pray for those in grief and pain can get help quickly.

Yeah. That country needs a lot of prayer right now, for sure.
