Illustration Friday: Cultivate

It was sooooo frustrating for my 7-year old self that my new little brother couldn't walk OR talk OR follow instructions when he was born. I came up with all kinds of plots (not this one exactly) to make him grow faster.



I've been missing my IF buddies! I'm in the middle of a big old deadline, but I hope to get back to IF more regularly in a month or so.

Some of the best illustrations seem to come from childhood memories and this one of yours just proves that. This is wonderful.

Sarah Melling said...

Adorable. As a mother, I'd have liked some kind of watering can that would have made them grow more slowly!

Another wonderful illustration! I love how the color and shape of the flowers are reflected the little girl's dress. Really great work!
