Illustration Friday

This week’s theme was ‘Balance.’ At first I doodled me balancing the various bits of life that make it hectic, busy, but I wasn’t liking what I came up with…This is an illo I did last weekend for a mix CD I made (I modified a few elements to fit the theme this week), but I think it fits. Have you ever tried to just leap into a hammock? It totally takes a lot of balance and concentration to get in without turning yourself off the other side. And once you’re in, you still need to find that place right in the middle, so you aren’t displacing your weight all on one end or the other. I know, a lot of effort for some relaxation. But so well worth it once it all comes together!
