editorial on Americans enduring weather disasters. Scratchboard, ink, digital

I decided to make an illustration on my interpretation of Americans helping each other out during weather disasters. I wanted to show people forming a human a chain, supporting each other and thus, supporting the country.

Here is the process for my scratchboard. Paint on ink first, scratch off, apply more ink and repeat over and over. There is watercolor and digital color applied at the very end.
