Illustration Friday: Afterwards





So this my very first blog post. i always write and draw in my journal and sketchbook but have always shied away from going public. i keep thinking i should design my own blog as i am a graphic designer and have done it for other people but as i am juggling and balancing a miniature tower of ideas and projects, i figured i should just start simple and let it grow from there. so this is an drawing i made for illustration friday... the theme being  "afterwards." I am also working on a sketchbook who's theme is "in flight" for the art house coop. so i mixed these two ideas along with the personal experience of leaving the nest of my private and tangible world and entering the online artistic community. so how do i feel afterwards.... a lot like my little bird... vulnerable and filled with the bliss of first flight.

A person's first flight is always exciting and sometimes a little frightful. Just remember that it is the journey that is always so special and not necessarily the destination. This is a beautiful first illustration. I am very proud of you of all that you have accomplished and know that you are only at the beginning of your potential. Love you always and forever, Mom
