After watching hours of Olympics coverage this past weekend, I hatched a plan to create an illustration for every day of the games. Partially as motivation for finishing my London map, partially to justify the exorbitant amounts of time I am spending in front of the tv. I'm calling it the Illustration Olympiad. Here are my illustrations for Saturday and Sunday.
The cauldron lighting was one of my favourite parts of the opening ceremonies on Friday. One of the coolest cauldrons I can remember. (Second favourite—making Lord of the Rings jokes during the forging of the ring).
