Illustration Friday: Impatience


It takes ten to twelve days for a Monarch butterfly to emerge from it's chrysalis.

This is my 3rd Illustration Friday submission and even though I don't like to toot my own horn, this one is my favorite by far. Probably because the little boy so closely resembles my son Todd who is now 14. I am also including the original sketch that I drew yesterday. Sometimes I prefer the immediacy of the original idea even more than the finished piece.

  4. Thanks again for everyone's comments. I am already looking forward to tomorrow's new topic, but this is one that I may actually frame. I have grown somewhat attached to it.
