Last night I attempted to "draw" using Photoshop. After about an hour I really could've used a drink...or an instructional book. Why I didn't make a margarita and pull out the colored pencils by hour number two, I have no idea.
I didn't make any resolutions, but I did mention that I would try to participate in Illustration Friday. This week's theme is Disaster Relief. Penelope is being quite generous by offering a free print to those who email proof of a donation to a tsunami relief fund. If you are reading this post, you have a computer. If you can afford a computer you can probably afford to donate even a small amount. If you're using a computer at the library you are saving oodles of money by not paying for your own internet connection. Any amount you can donate will make someone's life a little bit better and there is no arguing the importance of that.
My inspiration was the thought of the donations coming from little kids selling lemonade. I pictured their happy little piggy banks making the journey across the ocean.
Yes this took me two hours and No I wasn't drunk. On second thought, I do have a resolution- no more Photoshop drawings without a manual.
