Moon Poem

Well I've been slacking a bit in the Illustration Friday department. So much going on these days. I missed last weeks topic "Poem", and this weeks topic is "Moon". So I figured I'd write and illustrate a little poem about the moon. I have taken some time out once in a while in the afternoons to snap some shots of some beautiful skyscapes. The monsoon season has arrived, and along with her heavy winds, thunder, lightning, and rain, she has blessed us with some beautiful sunsets. If you'd like to see some of the shots, they are over here at my other blog. Thanks for visiting everyone!

This weeks Illustration Friday topic is "Discovery". Again another very appropriate topic to match up with the current events in my life at this point. I've been up to my elbows and eyebrows in the joys and frustrations of trying to get unpacked and settled into my new home. Circumstances had led me to live a rather nomadic lifestyle for several years. Many of my old belongings have not seen the light of day in decades. So now one of the joys of unpacking is the "Discovery" of all of the fun goodies that I'm delighted to have never wound up unloading. I found this old pair of jeans (below), that were pretty much a labor of love in the 70's. Every time they sprung a hole, I created a custom patch to cover it. Embroidery was a lot of fun in those days. So I took a closeup of a few of the patches and did some digital color editing and such, to make an illo (above) in honor of those old jeans.

Captian's Log

This weeks Illustration Friday topic is "Geeky". I almost gave up, then I came up with this idea.
You have to have a bit of Geek in you to get it. Enjoy!

This is a little GIF I created for this weeks Illustration Friday topic "Twist". I was able to design this little animation without getting my panties in a twist! Enjoy!
