☆ Perennial [Illustration Friday]

I have been very slack with my posts lately - this last month has seen life interrupt the normal flow of days. Birthdays, tea parties, disney on ice, more birthdays, a holiday that wasn't and more runny noses and hacking coughs!

I suppose in a way our life is perennial  (lasting or continuing throughout the entire year, as a stream.)especially these blasted colds we seem to keep acquiring!

Have a great day

☆ Stay [Illustration Friday]

When I saw this topic I immediately started singing the song 'Stay (I missed you)' by Lisa Loeb, a song which defined my university years, it's the song that I listening left to when I left uni for my holiday job and left Mr Mac behind, it's the song that I would sing if I ever auditioned for Australian Idol. 

And years later it is still one of my favourites.

So it was only appropriate that this song inspired my illustration.

"So I turned the radio on, I turned the radio up,
and this woman was singing my song:
lover's in love, and the other's run away,
lover is crying 'cause the other won't stay.
Some of us hover when we weep for the other who was
dying since the day they were born. 
Well, well, this is not that;
I think that I'm throwing, but I'm thrown. "

☆ Summer Song [ATC exchange]

It was difficult to illustrate this theme - especially since we are in the icy and howling depths of winter, I had to really reach for some inspiration.

(I actually wasn't going to join this month - but one night I had a few to many glasses of wine and I signed up... oh. crap.)

Here is my interpretation of Summer Song.

"The Symphony of the willy wag tail at 3am 
on a hot & sticky summers eve
keeping me awake"

 "The slurp and crunch of the reddest and juciest home grown
strawberry, pick and eaten in the garden, before the kids get them"

Summer seems so far away at the moment. sigh.

☆ New Challenge for July

I have been feeling rutted lately.

I am stuck in a rut, and although I am creating, I haven't really stretched myself lately. I have a few projects each week/ month that I plod away at, but I haven't started anything new lately, haven't worked outside my comfort zones, I haven't taken on any projects that scare the bejesus out of me.

I opened up my moleskine yesterday and I haven't sketched in it since december last year. Thats six months of not drawing from life. Six months of ignoring that side of my creativity.

I decided it was time to mix things up a bit.

So for July, my challenge is to sketch every day from life, to take half an hour for me and draw what I see.

That is my challenge for July - what is yours?
