Discovery



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.

For some reason I thought you were just a kid! These jeans bring back a lot of memories. Thanks for sharing. And I didn't mean anything by saying I thought you were just a kid. I was just surprised to have you reflect back to the seventies :)
