It has been a long few weeks. I have a post with details coming soon, but right lets just say it involved an unexpected basement renovation. There are always lessons to be learned but sometimes you need distance from the sweat and frustration before they become clear.
This illustration is of a pillow study done for one of my drawing courses on cross-hatching. It is a technique I rarely use but I always loved the effect in that great childrens book "Where the Wild Things Are."
