IF: “grounded”

It’s Illustration Friday! Today’s word is “grounded,” so I decided to defy the laws of gravity. With watercolors.

Art > Science :)

“Pattern”

Haven’t done an IF in awhile, this week’s “Pattern” made me think of repetition and a traditional dressmaker’s pattern. For the illo I made an Artist Trading Card collage:

Sometimes we don’t know our own strength…and sometimes, it’s because we don’t have any.

“Impatience”

I wasn’t patient enough to make a new piece this week, so here’s one that summarizes it for me…
leg
running away, somewhat unfinished, and not knowing what’s next.
Can’t WAIT for next week’s word!!! :)

“Modify”

IF this week has prompted a very important grammar lesson:
An adjective modifies a noun, as seen in the illustration below.
(And an adverb modifies a verb, boys and girls.)
For more information, please watch the schoolhouse rock song here.

“Idle”

Illustration Friday this week was “idle,” and while images ranging from long, idyllic summer naps to deathly stiff boredom floated through my head, the saying “idle hands are the devil’s tools” seemed to click the most – not to mention Idle Hands is one of my favorite Bad Movies ever :)
Plus I got to sketch with my lithograph crayons, which have been “idly” collecting dust in their hiatus…

“Tango”

[ today’s illustration is brought to you by my pair of broken sunglasses ]

“But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.”
Kahlil Gibran

“Hollow”

hollow

Suzie Lee was in a jumble-
Her tummy often made a rumble
To voice complaints of being hollow;
It begged Suzie for food to swallow.
So when Suzie skipped an ice cream cone
Her tummy made its anger known.

“Shaky”

Salt always got a little shaky making decisions when Pepper wasn’t around. As a result of his codependency, he has only been allowed to appear in restaurants in an isolated unit under Pepper’s close supervision. Salt could not be reached for comment, as he is currently in the Spice Rehabilitation Program building up his self-esteem and taking it one day at a time.
