Illustration Friday_ Super Hero
I know this is late. But, I got a quick sketch in. Since last week was Martin Luther King's birthday and we are embarking on Black History Month. I thought of all the heroes of the past and I decided to do a caricature of Martin as a super hero. After all, he exemplifies a hero and a super hero at that.

Illustration Friday - Peace, Phoenix
Okay, Where do I begin? It's been a very long time since my last post.
Happy New Year to all!!! It's 2007 and one thing I need is more T-I-M-E! With the move and the new job - I found myself lost trying to find time for everything I needed to get done. And what ended up happening is that I felt burnt out and I didnt make enough time for me - time to sketch, time to wind down. It's funny how we complain about things in our lives and what we desire; but when we are granted these things we start to resent them. For years I felt I wanted to go back to designing- I had already a part time job working at home. I had plenty of time to work on my illustrations between work and the family. But, I felt like something was still missing. Well, I thought maybe I needed to get out of the house and when I least expected it. I was offered this part time design job. So I currently juggle my design job and my work from home, two kids, a husband- and whatever else was thrown at me. What I failed to remember was that I needed to make time to unwind. Unwinding, was picking up a pencil at the end of the day and getting lost in my creative thoughts. So now, I made a resolution for 2007 - to keep to the saying created the day I graduated college ... "Keep doing art!". I love that my new part time has me thinking creative but, I hate that I had no time to illustrate. Knowing this I will work on making more post for IF and creating on my spare time too. I truly do miss you all! But, now that I am pretty much set up with my schedule - I pray that Father Time will bless me with more time to work on my art this year!!!!! Thanks to all of you and your support!!!!
