Illustration Friday- Ancient

This weeks subject was a bit tough for me. I didn't want to just draw a picture of something old, so I got a bit conceptual. This morning I read an article in the paper about how women are more able to make a come back in their careers after a major setback. Take for example, the Martha Stewart stock scandal( which after serving time she is coming out better than when she went in), the Paris Hilton internet sex video( which brought her modeling and book deals), and Kirstie Alley's big fat come back( capitalize on the fat and laugh all the way to the bank Kirstie). These women have been able to redefine the scarlet letter as ancient. Men seem to be able to ride out their scandals and come through in good repair,many times better than before the scandal. There are plenty of examples of the public saying bad boys will be boys, but nobody said girls would be girls, until now. Times are definitely changing.
This illustration is a reaction to the now ancient and albeit obsolete scarlet letter.
