I actually drew this eleven days ago after the inauguration so this is a late posting. The ceremony had a very different feel to it this time around, in fact I don't remember paying much attention to other ones in past years. The energy of the crowds made it feel like I was watching ESPN College Gameday or something, but times a million. This was a really cool pic taken at the event, you can even zoom in close and look for celebrities in the crowd. It's been a while since the US has really felt like it hit a pivotal turning point. Optimism abound...hopefully it'll be a turn for the better.
This lil' sketch is watercolor and pen.
