9/11 drawing I did

I was cleaning up some stuff from my computer (still) and stumbled across a drawing I did a few days after the shattering impact of 9/11. I was awestruck by the flood of people in the streets of NYC holding up photos of missing loved ones. I still get chills thinking of the expressions of extreme pain and desperation on all those faces. Then I saw the startling images of the world famous new york skyline sans its twin towers. It’s still shocking whenever I see it. Then I saw the lonely lady liberty standing in the midst of smoke and chaos without her beloved twins. All of those images and emotions combined into the drawing you see here. It’s raw and something I did in one take and I never dared to draw it better. It was like a photograph of the heart …my heart for those people…for us all….

Here’s the powerful song “Overcome” by Live that captures the feelings I still have about 9/11
