Day: May 10, 2016



This one was inspired by real-life events. Earlier this evening, DH and I finally converged at home, me after a post-daycare-pickup trip to the grocery store with the younger two, him after having brought back Eldest from an activity. We passed each other in the garage; he was carrying trash bags out, I was carrying the groceries in, and we shared a brief smooch. It occurred to me that this encounter encapsulated marriage perfectly.

The drawing is very rough, blue pen on a jagged 6×9 cutout (one of the font-combination test pages for my book is on the other side). I placed the drawing on a dining room chair and scanned; the wood grain works beautifully as the rim decoration.

I think it’s lovely and just the perfect amount of messy.
