IF---Seed


"Growth of an Idea"
approx 8.5 x 5.5 inches. 
Collage on a portion of a recycled bubble envelope, 
mounted a scrap of hardboard paneling

I haven't made anything in my studio since Bluto died. I never thought it would affect me this way. He would usually sleep near my worktable, now he isn't there. I 'm still rearranging the studio, so most of my stuff is boxed. I did work on a few things the last couple days on the kitchen table. I made 12 chunky book pages for two swaps. (I'll post about later) I finally made something to participate in Illustration Friday. It has been a while, I needed this.
