repair


i should have been all over last week's illustration friday theme (late), considering how i do most stuff at the last minute - or later. instead? i didn't show up at all. but this week's topic repair must have really struck a nerve because i felt compelled to do something with it right away.

thanks for all the thoughtful comments in my last post. the opening reception was great fun! they displayed all three pieces, and i sold a few prints, too.

happy sunday!

Hey, that's awesome that all three works went up and you sold some prints! WOWEE! It's no surprise. Your work has universal appeal.

So much truth to this one. And thank goodness for the quirks, eh? They make life (and places like Lawrence) all the more amusing.

Now this makes me want to take an oath that I will finally try to develop a 'handwriting' of my own; your image is so appealing.

I'm really glad your daughter like the drawing!
