Science book

What happens when a jr. high brother brings home his science book and the kindergartener gets hold of it. “Wow! Did you know this?!”

The theme for Illustration Friday this week is Retro. What could be more retro than a self portrait, Neanderthal style? Recent DNA evidence suggests that many of us have a little Neanderthal in us. They were smart, somewhat more robust than us to deal with a very cold northern climate, possibly could not say the same vowels as us with their throat structure, but were apparently musical. So here’s a look back in time for the theme of Retro.

This little girl taught herself to read by the time she started kindergarten. That’s talent!

IF–Lost (alternate)

IF--Lost (alternate)

I drew this woman while waiting at a doctor’s office. She looks lost, like things aren’t turning out the way she expected/hoped. I think I always feel a bit lost at the doctor’s–things are out of my control, sometimes medical professionals don’t tell you anything unless it’s bad or you ask, and there is always the uncertainty of What Happens Next. (Usually, it involves something pointy and painful.) If you stay for any length of time at the hospital, it just gets worse. You don’t wear your own clothes and you don’t have your usual routine, so you lose track of what day it is. When you come out, it’s like the world has gone on without you, and you’re scrambling to catch up.

Illustration class

So, is there something up with the Illustration Friday notifications? I haven’t gotten word of the last couple of topics, hence the lack of posting. That, and I’ve been busy. I’ve been taking a local illustration class, and it’s excellent. It’s only three weeks long and it’s very small (me and 1-2 other students), but the teacher actually knows what he’s talking about, and has the ability to speak a verbal language and explain (something my long-ago art professors with degrees sort of…lacked). I know it’s not perfect, but this is my final.

Next goal: learn how to do this sort of thing digitally.
