Vatican Drawing

Here’s a drawing I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but with a family, work, household, laundry, laundry, and more laundry, my life sometimes moves at the speed of a tar pit. Recently, though, I freed up some time to catch up on art projects, including this drawing.

A few months ago, I watched along with the rest of the world at the sight of the Vatican rooftop, waiting for the billowing black smoke to turn white and announce the selection of a new Pope. While not a Catholic, I found this fascinating because in the social media age of instant status updates, waiting around for black smoke (no new Pope) to turn white (new Pope) was a nice throwback to time-honored rituals that transcend technology, and because it was so unique, it also made for memorable visuals that I just had to draw (note: since I’m not Catholic nor Catholic-knowledgable, I’m not sure what the sensitivity levels are on this, so if this is in any way offensive to Catholics, please let me know.)
