Half the Sky?

Half the Sky is a new series I have started using colored pencil. The title comes from a Chinese proverb which states that “women hold up half the sky”. I was inspired by this saying when I read a book of the same title by the writers Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn ( Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide; www.halftheskymovement.org/).

So, I am experimenting with this idea and how to present it visually, Let me know what you think of this first image!  Half the Sky
