The forgotten candy stash

I haven't updated this space in well over a month. I haven't actually drawn anything of significance in well over a month either. I was experiencing a bit of a drought, I guess.

Yesterday, while my son was at preschool and my daughter was napping, I remembered a bag of candy I bought in Chinatown, months ago, that was sitting under my bed. I had a new gray sheet of Canford cardstock, and this drawing, which needed a companion. Somehow, after a good solid block of mental fog, I started to draw again.

I was almost late picking Sean up from school, I got so absorbed. I got back to work after dinner, when the kids were in bed. I woke up at 5:30 this morning and returned to my drawing. I think I might have even dreamed about it last night. I am now finished, and it feels great to have my pens and markers back out, right where they belong.
