Illustration Friday - Propagate

Chia Todd
colored pencil on green paper
2.5 x 3.5 inches ATC

OK this weeks word was a tough one.  I think my resulting image betrays my usually disguised weirdo side, but here it is anyway.  This was inspired by my son's decision to allow his Ag teacher to shave his head last week with a pair of sheep sheers.  It has taken some getting used to and I think this is my subconscious way of saying that I prefer my son with at least some hair on his still young head.  I am including an image of the freshly mowed head below.


  1. I can see more of his Daniels' side now. He looks good.

  2. I am Cracking up! Great take on the subject and what a way to immortalize your son! Hey, may be a paste of chia seeds, applied to the scalp & watered once a week will Work! Too funny!

  3. This is great! A very creative way to deal with the shock!

  4. It's a good work, to add the real to a touch of surreal, yet firmly 'planted'

  5. I love your work and sense of humor! This was really funny! At least he's a boy and can get away with a shaved head! I also loved your clumsy artist figure! Also, thanks for the comments on my blog! :)

  6. That's a really nice portrait of your son~:)
    I thought of spring when I looked at this illustration, fresh and lively.


I am a comment junkie. Let me know what you think.
