Here's a quick painting and a first post for Illustration Friday. The topic is aging. The first things that came to my mind were: old people, redwoods and mount rushmore (it recently had a "face lift"). But then this morning as I opened up the curtains the sunlight revealed on my desk a sheet of cake drawings I did a couple of weeks ago for my book.
That was my lightbulb moment for today. I thought hey a cake would be great! It's not necessarily something that ages, but more like something that signifies age. Like a cane, or bengay or something. I thought of putting a fire extinguisher beside the cake but decided not to. I don't even know how many candles are on it. I think over 40. Anyhow, I'm glad I stumbled upon illustration friday, this was fun to do.
