Illustration Friday - Poise

My niece Brandy and I took a trip to San Francisco last year to celebrate her graduation from college. I'm so proud of her! She's dealt with lots of adversity and continues to demonstrate poise and maturity through it all.

  9. Nice line drawing. You captured the gesture of "texting" well. Starting college takes poise, something I lacked when I was 18.

  24. so poise is somebody, maybe a girl, stopping his/her, motobike on the edge of the road for making a phone call, sitting at the green, maybe a phone call to some friends just to say that she is on her way... great!
