Illustration Friday - Foggy

The last few weeks have been very foggy for me as my good friend Paul is still unconscious in the hospital after being hit by a truck while on his bicycle. You can track his progress here. I'm very grateful for all of you. Go hug somebody. :-)

  8. I visited Paul's site last night to check his progress, can I tell you, niagara falls. You are such a good friend, here's a cyber hug for you, illness is just as hard on the caregivers. (The healing power of oreos is well documented).

  14. Nothing foggier than waiting for someone to come out of a fog. But brain healing takes MUCH more time than you would think. Best thing would be to wake up and be yourself again. Reality...it takes time, time and more time. This is when the slog works starts for all.
    God bless you all, I'm off to hug the hubby.

  20. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, it breaks my heart! I feel a bit foggy (and misty) for you and him. But your illo is beautiful, eat an extra oreo for me and don't forget to drink lots of water!

  21. I love the order within chaos in this, the concentrated left side and the sparse right, and of course your lines are always exquisite!

  22. Willie, such a lovely drawing. It's filled with emotion and emptiness at the same time. I will keep your friend in my thoughts and prayers. God bless.

  23. It is strange how the fog in life helps us see what really matters. My prayers are with you and Paul.

  24. Willie, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. My thoughts are with you! Sending a cyberhug to you!

  25. I really like the stack of jello or ice cream cups next to the Oreos. Looks like one of my late nights in grad school finishing my portfolio.

    My illustration for foggy would have been a blank page in my own sketch book. I really miss Paul at work and can't wait to brainstorm with him again.
