It has been a little while since I've done an Illustration Friday. I wanted to participate, yet between the submission piece I just finished right before Easter, and then becoming sick with a cold, topped off with a sinus infection, I've been down for a good 10 days. Although when you’re a mom, being down really just means not functioning at full capacity.
For my "linked piece" I decided to just let my pen have free range and leave my brain out of it. Usually when I do this atree appears, ask anyone who knows me well and they can tell you, I have been making trees for many years. “Tree people” in particular. It was fun and relaxing to do my tree, especially after four months of working out sketches and layouts and color for the submission piece. Just to do a simple black and white with pen was enjoyable--and isn't that what it is all really about anyway?
