I have been having a lot of time at very silent work to make some illustrations.
And lately every week I’m trying to work on things I never have had the patience to actually do.
Today’s test was to make something I could put in illustrator to work on my graphic skills… but what it really feels like is my yearning to do something other than sit at a desk from 9am to 6pm without getting yelled at.
I desperately want to do something fun… so next week I think I’m going to take a day to play hooky. And I bet I won’t get yelled at not even once!
I’m gonna go full Ferris Bueller, the parade, the vest… the everything.
I would personally like to say the following 2 things
1. I love patriotic Holidays.
2. I like days when I’m not so preoccupied with work, and tired from all the chaos that is contained in one office building that I get to draw.
This doesn’t happen very often nowadays.
So let’s get into this drawing. I won’t say anything sarcastic about the US, because it’s pretty cool and if it wasn’t for like 15,000 different cultures coming here to exist…. I know I certainly wouldn’t.
So Happy Birthday America, and for the next 48 hours everything will be fireworks, red white & blue, powdered wigs, and Alexander Hamilton look-a-like contests.
Also not having to go to work and getting to draw is so amazing that it hurts!
