Monday Reflection-Rocking the Vote

Tuesday is election day across the country.
Please do your duty.
Vote.

Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote. -George Jean Nathan

Democracy is being allowed to vote for the candidate you dislike least.
-Robert Byrne

The idea of an election is much more interesting to me than the election itself…
The act of voting is in itself the defining moment.
-Jeff Melvoin

If liberty and equality, as is thought by some
are chiefly to be found in democracy,

they will be best attained
when all persons alike share in the government to the utmost.

-Aristotle

Presidential Debate Doodles

On the night of the first Presidential Debate, I followed some advice from Robert Dancik and spent that time sketching while watching the debate on CNN.  (Robert suggested during a workshop to sketch to music that you don’t normally listen to.)  The result was four pages of doodles, sketches, and words, and one page of four faces.  I then took the various images and words from those pages and transferred them to a piece gessoed paper bag.

I highly recommend trying this as a creativity challenge.  If nothing else, it decreases your stress while watching the debate, makes the time go by quicker, and may generate ideas for future projects.
