This is another entry for a contest. Prismacolor is doing their first annual contest. I had done this charcoal reversal a few years back and entered it. I don't do charcoal reversals much. Having two young children makes it hard to concentrate on that heavily messy medium. After watching the news of 911 I knew I needed to do artwork on this thing. I picked out photos that are most seen of the tragedy, I have one of the firefighters at the flagpole but it's not as well done as Ground Zero here. It looks more like some nuclear holocaust but I think you can recognize the remmants of the two towers, the girders.
