This is the first time I've ever participated in Illustration Friday. This week the word was "Resolutions" and this is my submission-
It's a combination of a drawing and a photograph and since I'm new to Photoshop, please don't judge me too harshly!
As for the list of "resolutions," it's a fake as anyone who knows me could attest. I don't drink, I don't exercise and I would never give up donuts.
Here is my real list:
-Go on more dates with my husband
-Continue to do lots of art and writing without always stopping to ask myself "Why the hell am I doing this?"
-Find the perfect pair of red ballet flats
-Spend more time with my kids without simultaneously making lists in the back of my mind about what I need to do that day
-Be more experimental with how I cook vegetables
I think that should do it.
