The early bird gets the worm, but the second rat gets the cheese.

This is a drawing from a LONG time ago. For some reason I used to have a fascination with rats. Happy Halloween everybody!!

5 objects. 7 times.

I rarely draw the same thing more than once. These drawings were for a painting assignment. The 5 objects are the same in each, though I moved around slightly to alter the viewpoint.

Special bonus points if you guess which one was used for the painting. :-)

“At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear. It is those we live with and love and should know who elude us. You can love completely without complete understanding."

Illustration Friday - Grow

What would I do if I wasn't afraid?

"Failure seldom stops you; what stops you
is the fear of failure."

-- Jack Lemmon, (1925-2001), Actor

p.s. Tomorrow is my birthday, so leave me some
of YOUR wisdom about growing. :-)

Illustration Friday - Extremes

My extreme fear of death motivates so many drawings. Some days (like today) I'm actually grateful for it. :-)

"Whenever he thought about it he felt terrible.
And so, at last, he came to a fateful decision.
He decided not to think about it."
