Hot Christmas!

I might change into shorts and sandals later today!

Illustration Friday: “Winter”

Well, I went straight from moving into a new apartment to the holiday season, but I took a break from Christmas carousing to draw this. Aw, who am I kidding, the blizzard made me do it! It took three days for the plows to come by, and walking around is still kind of difficult, especially when the sun shines on the banks of melting ice. There’s nothing like pretending to be completely snowed in to recover my discipline (that and forgetting to stock up on books and movies at the library…)

Illustration Friday: “Perspective”

From the perspective of some cast-off possessions. No, this is drawn from my own perspective, because I have recently cured myself of the habit of furnishing, entertaining, and even clothing myself with things dumped on the sidewalk or in building lobbies. Still, they call out and whimper at me whenever I pass them on the street. Especially the old radios, because I still own a whole pile of cassette tapes…

Hmm, on second look I’m not happy with the colors, especially on the office chair. Any suggestions?

Illustration Friday: “Undone”

Somethin’ seasonal. I had another idea for this week’s word, but I didn’t take it beyond a thumbnail sketch yet. Maybe I’ll post it later, because it’s kinda funny. Assorted health problems kept me from doing anything over the last week and a half, so it feels good to be drawing again.

This started out as a Christmas card for my friend’s little brother: before I gave it to him I traced it in Inkscape and added color. If I was a snowman I’d never smile because I could never enjoy another hot beverage, i.e. coffee.
