detach


when a creative lark calls, i detach from reality and float away into another world to chase it... in the meantime my children wonder when i'll return :)

This is great and it is something that I am doing 'more and more'. You have a lovely style, able to capture the essence.

great to know there are others that relate to this sentiment! i always feel guilty when it happens...like i'm being sucked away against my will!

heather - #1 is already halfway up in the clouds with me! #2 just looks at us as if we're the strangest people on earth; probably wondering why she's been dealt this lot in life!

Yeah, and why not. We all need to every so often. Great work and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Bingo! Well, for me, I TRY to float away, but they always seem to drag me back down. I feel frustrated. And then I feel guilty about feeling frustrated. This is a great, great illo!

Thank you so much for your warm comment. Much appreciated.

p.s. Yea, the Gorey sketch!!! What doodle did you leave behind??

see you there! said...

What a great illustration. Every line is right and necessary. That's hard to do (for me).
