illustration friday ... teacher

{click image to enlarge}

this is a lesson that teachers should really be teaching in school - learning to not do this on an elevator will be more commonly used than finding the diameter of a circle or the value of "x" in an equation.  just saying.

illustration friday ... freeze

the word this week on illustration friday was "freeze".  it made me think of a cold, snowy night in the city.  instead of my usual micron pens, i decided to go old school and use an old trusty bic pen.

here is the little guy that i am working on now.  my baby boy just went from the baby room to the 1 year old room at day care.  this is how i picture him in his new space. as you can see, it started out as a quick little sketch but i actually really ended up liking him so i'm going to turn him into a finished piece.  stay tuned to see how he turns out!

illustration friday ... lonely

{click image to enlarge}
lonliness is can be such an overpowering thing.  it can take you miles away from where you should be and leave you with so much emptiness that you could just float off into nothingness, while filling you with such a heavy sadness that you could be jolted right back down again without warning- a tug of war between emptiness and sadness that seems to never end.
