‘Cause sometimes, we just need to step outside our comfortable little boxes to get a new perspective. Enjoy your ride through 2013!
Can’t you just hear the Smokey Robinson on his stereo?
It’s been a while! I’m teaching art now (woohoo!) and though I haven’t submitted to Illustration Friday in a while, I always post the topic for my kids. Long story short, I have an illustrated children’s book called Rahoola’s Song being released this month and I’m trying to get back into the swing of drawing regularly as a warm up for my second, which is in the works. So, I was determined to draw for this week’s theme. “Zoom” made me recall a sculpture I had made in ceramics class a couple years ago so I put it in 2D and am rather liking it. Hope you do too. good to be back.
Goodness. Don’t touch my freakin’ lollipop!
My 5 year old came home today from school saying “freakin’”. Gotta let those go. Make a big deal and it sticks more often than not. Most of them pass him by. A few weeks ago he said, “Daddy, the ‘f’ word is really bad.”
My wife and I looked at each other and did the silent “woah” and I said, “No kidding? What’s the ‘f word’?”
He looked around to make sure the coast was clear and whispered, “fight.”
Whew. Still 5.
Hope you like the illo. Happy Friday.
Been a while… good to be back doing some i.f. stuff. Lord knows I’m tired of painting this house. Almost done. NEVER paint the entire interior of a house at one time. My two cents.
Anyway, not sure what’s up with the morbid thing that ties my two last post together. Don’t know that I’ve ever drawn two illos in a row with x eyes in my life, but this was the first thing that came to mind after reading the theme for this week. Anyway, hope you like. It was good to start drawing again.
I skipped last week’s IF theme. First time since I started doing this some months ago. I feel guilty. I had half a drawing and didn’t feel like finishing because, I hate to say it… this forcing myself to draw every week finally started to feel like work. Sucking the fun AND ink out of my pen. Bleh.
Anyway, moving on: I was in the mood this weekend since I finished report cards, and well… here you go.
Why? Because you know anyone who could calm the seas would have made some nice waves if surfboards had been around. I just always wonder what Jesus would’ve been like had he been around today. You know… contemporary Jesus. Some people like their Jesus apocalyptic and divisive. I like mine laid back, inclusive, and all about love. My Jesus would’ve surfed. Unless there was someone who needed some help…
’cause after all, he’s still Jesus.
