A Plethora of Portraits

I call these the Democracy Drawings. During the 2018 US mid-term elections, I wanted to thank those who went out to vote simply because in these crappy times, I particularly felt that it was important to be involved. As I am not American, I am not eligible to vote in their elections, so all I could do was say thank you.

Sometimes I just had to do more than be an armchair protester. And I’m still in a chair, but it’s a drafting chair and I spent a lot of time on these portraits to thank a few who did their democratic duty. So I feel in the greater scheme, it isn’t much, but it’s some thing.

On the other hand, I learned a lot, as one does when one goes on a drawing spree. I enjoyed drawing in this style and it may not be the last time I’ll be drawing these types of portraits again.

The subjects of the portraits are sometimes of real people, most are Sims because Sim players is the circle I run in nowadays. Credits are in the captions.

Here are the portraits:

    Eee, thank you so much for doing this! Voting is SO important and it saddens me that there are millions who dontd do their part of being a citizen but then complain when things didn’t go their way. You can’t not vote and then complain when the things you wanted voted on and passed didn’t get passed.

    PLEASE VOTE IF YOU CAN!!

    Again, thank you so much for drawing these gorgeous pieces! I wish I could hang them up on my wall! ❤

      You’re very welcome! We’re fortunate that we do have the ability to vote, and ideally the elections are fair. It’s true, millions don’t vote, and unfortunately they have the right to not vote as well. It’s good to pay attention to not just elections, but the big and little things all levels of government are doing. I know it can get overwhelming. :)
