Illustration Friday - Little Things

Waiting for Sam at Starbux. One of the little pleasures in my life is taking advantage of the little gifts, like a little extra time, and doing a little drawing where I get to notice all the little things around me. :-)

"Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich."

  1. I really really like this:) Your idea as well as your beautiful sketch. And I agree with you 100% on the awesomeness of the little things. I think that is why I love the blogging medium; you learn about people so wonderfully through the little things here:))
