Post squares 021613 - 021913 ~ A Meteor, The Pope, Kabul and George Washington

A design using and abstracting details from the photos on the cover of the Washington Post for four consecutive days, the 16th through the 19th.

The stories behind each photo : the 16th ~ the surprise meteor that entered the Earth's atmosphere over Russia, the 17th ~ a fascinating article detailing the systematic dysfunction in the Vatican, the 18th ~ how corruption has manifested as a result of democracy in Afghanistan, and the 19th ~ a parade celebrating George Washington's birthday.

Each drawing is just 1.5" square. I used 76 different pencils, chosen randomly to color in each little section.
