I just got back from a backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail. It was well worth it to get out there and recharge my batteries. It was a pretty tough hike, especially for someone who does little physical activity (my usual exercise is walking around Philadelphia, not exactly tough terrain ). I drew a little bit, but I mostly took pictures. I'm not a very good photographer, but I still had fun doing it.

This illustration was done for The Indypendent. The article was about someone who had ideas that strayed from the norm. I wanted to do a painting that was more interested in the overall themes of the article, rather than doing another portrait.
Einstein on Israel and Zionism Review.
So the Indypendent wasn't happy with the last piece I did, they thought it was too abstract. So for the next final they wanted my sketch that was a straight portrait, I only had hours to finish this one so I did it in pencil/digital. And in the end they went with the initial illustration anyway. Hooray!
