Illustration Friday: Blanket

The Super Bowl is happening right now. I am one of only 3 people in the United States not watching it. The other two are in comas. The Super Bowl is taking place only a few miles from my house. I took that as a good sign to not leave my house today. I can only imagine what traffic must be like around the stadium, and afterwards, the sheer volume of drunks on the road would seem to make all forms of travel unadvisable.

I played around with an old drawing and some pages from a Heloise book and my photocopier. It stands in my living room.

Why? Where do you keep yours?

I haven't done any work for Illustration Friday recently, as I have been sewing. My children think I need to update my look. I know they are right. I have become aware that I look OK in purple, which is a sure sign I am getting old. I think I will buy a red hat.

Degas did drawings remarkably like this of known criminal types.

Well at least you used your time productively and colourfully!

I didn't watch the Super Bowl either, and I was defintely not in a coma:> I like you blanket - the use of the layers and the color variations is very effective.
