For fififolle's Vorenus, #16 prompt for the palette meme. Centurion Lucius Vorenus was wearing flower crowns in canon long before Tumblr made it a thing, I’ll have you know.

CRITICAL EDUCATION

New one for SooJin Buzelli at Planadviser magazine, based on the concept of “The importance of the right training/knowledge is power.” A pretty tricky phrase to illustrate, particularly since I needed to encapsulate both of those slightly different ideas. I like all the other sketches, but this is the only one that clicks with the concept. A nice thing with SooJin’s assignments is that I often get neat sketches that I can reuse later on for personal stuff.

Bottom is the color study, which, in some ways I prefer, but it made me too sleepy. Flashbacks of falling asleep in overly warm classrooms.

From the section charmingly called “Feux de Joye,” this is a somewhat modified scan of 17th century fireworks from Practique de la guerre.
Happy Fourth of July!

My hero. Author, printer, publisher, scientist, inventor, diplomat, prankster, founder of libraries, man about town, bon viveur, babe magnet, gadfly, anonymous and incisive blogger; nothing would have been the same without him.
