Illustration Friday: Silent

This week’s submission for Illustration Friday is in honor of Veteran’s Day. When first creating this image for The Wishing Tree, I imagined Amanda waving goodbye to her father as he deployed, silent in her worry and effort to be brave.  I hope everyone will take a moment of silence today to remember our veterans and all that they’ve sacrificed for our country.

Have a great weekend!
