Post square 022213-022513 ~ Million Feet Under Heavy Hollywood

This drawing is composed of details abstracted from the photographs on the cover of the Washington Post for four days, from 2/22 to 2/25.

The first photo, on the 22nd, was of two men and a 9-year-old girl at a firing range. The article was about a woman in North Dakota, one of the gun-friendliest states in America, who is a gun control advocate.

The second photo, on the 23rd, showed a construction crew working 70 feet below ground and support walls looming above them, excavating for the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The third photo, on the 24th, illustrated the article about the rebels in Syria being supplied with heavy weaponry by outside powers.

The fourth photo, on the 25th, caught the swirling skirts of the dancers on the stage at the Oscars ceremony.

I used 82 different colored pencils, chosen at random, to color in the design.
