My daughter, Pencil Princess, drew these. I love them.
She does not like them (hates them), but said I could post them on my blog.
She did these in art class. The little girl is watching big sister smoke. Then in the next panel, as an older kid, she’s now smoking. Their faces are scratched out, but I love that. So, the little girl is wearing a cat dress and then she’s wearing a cat shirt to show progression of time. I love the exaggerated clouds of smoke and how the smoke lines up almost perfectly from panel to panel.
I forget, did you do that on purpose, PenPrin? Nice job. Love it.
Check out her creations on her blog. She’s really developing her illustration skills.
My daughter, Lilli, had a brilliant, funny idea the other day while sunbathing at the beach. We sketched our own versions of her light bulb moment. I think hers turned out perfectly! Love her sketch and illustration abilities! Such a funny thought, Pencil Princess. And your art skills are exploding!
So the idea is based on the fact that we love to pick up shells. And she thought, “We are basically picking up old parts of sea creatures, their exoskeletons, and we don’t even think anything about it. What if there was a shell, walking around the beach, picking up human bones. That would seem weird!” LOL So Far Side of her to think of. She’s funny, talented and really smart.
Love you, Girl.
Hilarious! Love the beach bag with huge flowers on it. Nice detail!
Would you be my awning?
Protect me from the rain.
Shelter me from the storm.
Swallow me in your shade.
Would you be my dawning?
Protect me from myself.
Shelter me from the darkness.
Take me down from this high shelf.
I don’t want to jump.
But I want someone to care.
If I take this lovely leap?
Be my awning hanging there.
Don’t see awnings any more.
They’re disappearing into air.
You’re a delightful oddity,
So special and very rare.
Tough enough to hold.
Let the rain roll off your back
Because underneath you’re gold.
You’re my luxurious safety net that never lets me down.
So here’s a sketch I did in drawing class of a weathered awning.
Just a doodle really. And here’s a tree.
Two of my favorite doodles. Just thought I’d share. 😀
I learned how to draw from being bored in school.
I would doodle on the margins of my paper.
If you’re a llama?
Be the best llama you know.
If you can’t be a llama, be the best version of yourself today. Or at least be a little better than yesterday–in understanding, patience or kindness. That’s what all these tomorrows are for.

Another llama! Llama sighting.
My dad drew this when he was young. My daughter took a pic of it before we left Missouri. His portfolio was starting to deteriorate from water damage and time. So we took pix of all of the artwork in there and this was among the ruins. So cool!
This llama belongs on the side of a building with a Che Guevara beret! #banksy Love it! That’s his signature “James K.” He must have been young and still in school. So cute!
