Summer shoes-'09 version

Meg got new purple gym shoes last week. They are so cute, I considered ordering myself a pair (they do make them in adult sizes.) However, she is 2, and I am 32. They're probably better suited for someone her age.

Two summers ago, I also drew her (and Sean's) little shoes. Last summer, I started drawing her 2008 kicks, and I never finished, which I now regret. I could have had a complete set. Maybe it's not too late to finish that.

Wired

I don't know anything at all about the intricacies of telephone pole wiring, but this one sure has a lot going on. In all honesty, I did take some artistic license with a few of the wires, though. So I guess this drawing isn't 100% accurate.
The candy from Chinatown drawing, and an older drawing of a sucker that is similar in style were both chosen for a juried show at a local gallery. I was happy to be selected for the show, and even happier that both pieces made it in. This is also my 100th post. It's taken me a long time to get to 100 posts (too long, actually) but this was a pretty good way to get to that point. Here's to 100 more-and in a shorter period of time than it took me to get to the first 100!
