Irena's Vow


This is a drawing I did for the director of the play- "Irena's Vow" to be given as a gift to his cast. It's the true story of a Polish woman who hid 12 Jews in the basement of an SS Officer's house during the Holocaust. I was fortunate enough to see the play and it was very well done.
This drawing is colored pencil and I did the majority of it yesterday (I didn't get final approval of sketches till late last week, and I had a couple of gigs Friday and Saturday, so I didn't have much time to work on it.) Nevertheless, here it is.

Yeah, I have to echo all the comments that proceeded mine. I'm diggin' seeing you working this many people into one image. Very kool.

Thanks, Rob- it was a challenge.
Btw, I worked a hidden "Al" into the drawing as an omage to Al Hirshfeld...
