In God We Trust
Due to a short, yet very busy work week and Thanksgiving just around the corner, I've decided to post a very rudimentary sketch for Illustration Friday's theme "free", which I'll finished after Thanksgiving. It was a quick 3 minute thumbnail sketch of an idea I had back in March and it has been in my sketchbook waiting for just the right time to appear. This is how most of my illustrations start with just a line and a whisper of a thought or an idea here and there. I then go on to refine them with many sketches after the first. I think I may just take Cin's lead and try my hand at making this into a bookplate. Cin creates the most outstanding bookplates. Cin, you've inspired me!
I am so thankful this Thanksgiving for my country and for what it stands for. In God We Trust, Truth, Liberty and Justice for All. Amen.
Other things on my drawing board to follow:
1. Final illustration for "Broken", see November 3, 2005 blog entry.
2. A sketch of Starbuck's patron, "Sarah" who was kind enough to allow me post an illustration of her when it's finished.
Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless You All.
