Illustration Friday: Remember


I’ve been practicing drawing hands more. If you’ve noticed, it’s coming across in my quick little doodles where there are now hands with actual hints of fingers instead of just half circles. I’m trying to find my style. I’m comfortable with my little doodles but I’ve always wanted to draw more realistic figures. This is sort of half way between my doodles and what I thought I wanted. But as I’m moving away from my doodles I don’t know if I’m happy with going more realistic. Maybe it’s just that I’m uncomfortable with it…

Well anyhoo, to this drawing. Illustration Friday this week is remember. The word calls to mind conversations I have with Alan everyday. We marvel at how big Isabelle has gotten and often say remember how small she was when she was born, how skinny her little legs were? Remember how she used to just lay there like a lump? Remember when she was in my belly and we could feel her kicks?

And when Isabelle is all grown up I will remember these days, when she’s still tiny but so much bigger than when she first got home and I will say to her, I remember…
