Illustration Friday - Blanket



one of my favourite old drawings is this quick pencil sketch I did of my then 5 year old daughter asleep in the early morning while we were on vacation. At the same time I wrote and illustrated a little children's book for her about a mouse and his various animal friends (how original was that?) and here they have spread out a blanket for a celebratory picnic and party. The mashup of the two seems to fit the topic. Frightening to think that my daughter is turning 30 this year.

this is so sweet, I have a four year old and it reminds my so much of him
and his wild imagination

Both the illustration and post are wonderful. I am a software developer also (but not retired).

Laurel, I'm only semi retired so actually I'm "hoping" to do a few months work this year
