My contribution to the "Earth: Fragile Planet" exhibit currently on view at the Society of Illustrators in NYC. It's an important show worth seeing, with many drawgers work included.
The Society gallery is opened until 8pm tomorrow (Tues. 6/8). Anyone planning to stop by might want to pop upstairs to the sketch night, where I'll be playing with Barry Blitt and Michael Sloan. We'll be joined by special guest, jazz guitar great Ken Wessel.
Bring a sketch pad. Two models, live music, cash bar. 6:30-9:30, $15. 128 East 63rd Street.

This is beautiful drawing Joe.
Lovely work with the watercolor as well.
Sure would be nice as a poster ( it's a great choice by SI to use it for the entry.)

This is stunning.
When you use black, it feels like a rich, saturated color somehow. The purple in the mama bear's face and the setting sun are great touches.

another beauty, Joe.
Jim PaillotJune 7, 2010
And that's how it's done. What a beauty, Joe.
Victor JuhaszJune 7, 2010
Solid, painfully beautiful piece.
Roberto ParadaJune 7, 2010
Nicely done Joe.

Very nice Joe. The tight cropping really strengthens it.
FlahertyJune 8, 2010
Very sweet (sad) drawing Joe. Not heavy handed. Got to catch the show.
Ellen WeinsteinJune 8, 2010
Beautiful, subtle and powerful drawing, Joe.

It was great seeing this in person, and you as well, on Friday.
Tim OBrienJune 8, 2010
Great image Joe.
Drew FriedmanJune 8, 2010
That's a wonderful image. Perfect.

Thanks for the comments. I was afraid it might have been a bit too sentimental.

Joe it is a beauty. I specially like the water surface you created. Looking forward to see it in person too.

Nice painting, but your premise is wrong, since the polar bear population is increasing. They are breeding on land instead of in the water. Just sayin'. =)
