My entry this week for “hero” is my dog Jasper. Everyone is a hero in our home at some point, but Jasper gives unconditional love to us all. He warms our hearts and sweetens our souls. How could we have ever lived without him?
Illustration Friday’s word this week is “wall.” The first thing that popped into my head was Pink Floyd’s The Wall. I had to Google them, because it’s been a while since I have thought about the band. I wasn’t actually a huge fan – an old boyfriend was though. When I Googled Pink Floyd I was immediately reminded of all those screaming eerie faces. Which led me to draw what I drew – a kind of screaming self portrait. After I finished, all the drawing reminded me of was when I go to the dentist and my jaw locks, and I have this irrational fear that my jaw is never going to close again. The fear quickly dissipates when my jaw does in fact close. I usually don’t draw dark stuff. I’m not a dark person, but that’s where the word led me.
