I should be working on my manuscripts. I have two that need my attention. They are on my list of things to do. I really should work on them, really. The problem is, I’m enjoying doing the crazy illustrations.
I think this is what I needed. A chance to doodle and not be caught up in the final art. Leaving things just a bit undone. No pressure = FUN! And I’m having fun. I’m drawing the first thing that comes into my head. It feels like art therapy. The theme for this Illustration Friday is Fierce. Although a great theme, I kept hearing the winner of Project Runway Christian Siriano say, “It’s Fierce.” After I shook the phrase out of my mind, I came up with what I thought was the most fierce thing of all, a mother protecting her child.
