“Untitled” © Susan Sorrell Hill

The Illustration Friday word of the week is icon.

The New Oxford American Dictionary defines icon (noun) as:

1. a painting of Jesus Christ or another holy figure, typically in a traditional style on wood, venerated and used as an aid to devotion in the Byzantine and other Eastern Churches. 

2. a person or thing regarded as a representative symbol of something: this iron-jawed icon of American manhood.

I think a humorous depiction of a modern Buddha sort of squeaks by in this category, don’t you…?
