Illustration Friday: Homage

When one asks to show respect to someone in my life it starts with my parents. The illustration shows their bright energy lifting off togethor into the sky. They bring light to many people with their work. They both worked for NASA (dad still does), but it doesn't stop there. They used to run an appliance business and work as a team to get my dad moving on a service call or delivery. My dad even took it a step further and posted his knowledge online for people to fix it themselves...and they did! My mom uses her spare time to fix the neighbors and friend's tax headaches with her accounting skills. Of course they got my sister and I involved early on to get a little work ethic in our systems. I would work with my parents in a heart beat, they are as fair as you get and giving when it is the most needed.

Illustration Friday: Garden

Good ol pencil to paper here with a little help from Travel Magazines. Although the fountain and wild tree are pretty much my imagination at work. Hope to finish this up....put some stair steps coming down...expand the temple upwards and grow some more vines.

Biking Demon

My sister is training for the MS150...a 170 mile bike ride from Houston to Austin, benefiting the MS Lone Star Chapter. She asked me to create a design for her jersey. Since she a loyal member of Team DP, I got right on it and wanted to share the result.

Illustration Friday: Leap

"Leap" made me think of the NES game Snake Rattle 'n' Roll. A nice warm-up for my day of drawing and sharpie coloring fun!
