So here it is. I tried to keep the imagery simple, yet still have the implications be meaningful. After my son asked me why I drew such a sad picture, I knew I achieved my goal.
By the way, he allowed me to have him pose his hand for the picture. I shot his hand with my phone camera and I drew the hand right from my phone. Thanks, Son!
As I think a bit about this illustration, I am not sure who suffers most, the child or the parent.
