I finally gave myself about an hour to do something for this challenge. I went in the direction a water fairy. I guess they call those sprites but you can kinda see where I'm going here. Had to start with what a water fairy would look like...and what you see really has nothing to do with something that would spend its life aquatically. I broke out my colored pencils-I haven't used these in years-it's like catching up with a good friend you haven't seen in a long long time. this was a very fun diversion from the grind. Speaking of which, all of my classes except one were canceled this semester due to low school enrollment. A major damper on the joy I find in teaching, so I guess it's time to pull out and go on to other pastures. More thoughts on that later. Meanwhile, I am still going to work on this idea so stay tuned. I always find cool stuff around me to look at. Here is my buddy Josh's contribution to this challenge. Neato, yes? No Poprocks or Sharks or anything but still very nice.
I'll have my "judges" look over the examples of greatness and get back to you with a cup o' coffee winner. Or better yet, all of these are so great that I will happily get all of you guys a coffee. So come on down and let's go grab some caffeine on me!
I'm off to Monterey for the weekend, if you're around the area look around for me. Have a great weekend.
