Link to Art for Hope is broken.  What I'm really wondering is... is there somewhere to buy a print for this?  Thanks.

Really loving that super sharp contrast of the giant next to the tiny birds. The haze the sky has sets the perfect tone for the whole piece and I really adore the silhouetted branches in the bottom left to tie the character into the background! Great work!

That's beautiful, I like the sentiment behind it, and the sentiment it expresses. For all the mass and power of the robot, the round shapes make him look as gentle as they do hulking.

Wow, this is truly a wonderful way to represent a tragic theme. I get the feeling that this ancient and worn robot creature is rising from the ground after falling hard, lifting its arms to release the shining red cardinals as a beacon of hope.

Now I have two things to address. One, I love how the branches of that bubble-plant rise up to the middle of the circular shoulder piece. A feature that large and plain on a drawing like this could use something to break it up, and using the tree branch is just the ticket. That part is awesome.

Second part, I really don't like the tree branches. They seem a bit out of place for some reason, very stark and rather harsh on the eye when compared to the robot and cardinals. Now obviously you don't want the viewer to be admiring your trees and missing the robot or the birds, but all the same I think something a bit more dead-branchlike and a little less like Coral would do the trick better.

Ultimately the decision is yours, but I just thought I would place my opinion out here. This entire piece is fantastic, and I would proudly have a large print of it were I spending money on that kind of thing right now, even more so knowing it is going towards such a wonderful cause. Again a fantastic representation of a theme and overall a very nice idea.

Just remember that birds and machines will occasionally remind you that
Ann Lies.
