Froilan used to tell me, "Stand on my shoulders." This memory inspired this illustration which I intend to make into cards to send out to people who've supported me over the years. Maybe it's not my strongest composition. It's a simple drawing, but it definitely means something to me.
"Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence..."
-Simon & Garfunkel
I have to admit: this is my first time using Adobe Illustrator. It was maddening to a degree. I am accustomed to pixel art, so vectors are a whole new realm of perfectionism.
