Illustration Friday: Disaster Relief

This week’s Illustration Friday is disaster relief. I found this a very hard subject. Trying to think about something to draw was heart wrenching. Sometimes I think the news is a bad thing. I tried to watch as little of it as possible. Sometimes I feel as if terrible images batter one’s soul. So for this subject I tried to think of something that would lead to positive action.

I just took a look at some of the other illustrations up. I really liked Papunella Broust. That one moved me to tears, the expression on the faces and they way they’re holding each other.


After I went peeing in a cup for my pregnancy test at the hospital we were driving away and we saw a rainbow, a beautiful rainbow that filled up the sky in front of us. We pulled over and listened to Sarah McLachlan singing The Rainbow Connection. I happily sat there thinking of happy thoughts like how rainbows come out after a rain and the world seems new and fresh and filled with possibility. I’m taking it as a good sign about the baby!
