87 Mr O; searching for refuge

Mr O., prismacolor, 5 1/8" x 5 1/8"

This is a special portrait by special request; there is a remarkable story unfolding over at the blog Love Versus Goliath, and this image shows the main character of that story in front of the actual fence that he was detained behind in Australia while fighting for asylum.

This is a concept drawing for a potential book cover; head over to http://teamoyeniyi.com/ to find out more.

This is portrait number 87 of 100.

There will be a draw for the 100th portrait, which will be an acrylic painting, on Feb. 15th. Check the link: https://artboy68project.wordpress.com/for-number-100-acrylic-painting-enter-here/ . Enter even if I’ve drawn you before!

    Reblogged this on Love versus Goliath : A Partner Visa Journey and commented:
    This is concept art for the cover of Love versus Goliath. Please visit the artist, Scott, to see more of his work. I was going to save this for article 500 but I couldn’t wait! Does this speak to you? What does it say?
