Illustration Friday: Worn as in Worn Out!



The first images that came to mind after reading the prompt were a worn shoe or shirt. However, after thinking a little more, I decided to go with the idea of someone worn out and in need of a vacation. I know I am! This charming old lady is certainly enjoying a much needed break by the beach.
I would still like to do the 'before' and show her in a more stressful 'worn-out' scenario and perhaps add some color, but for now, this will have to do.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by.
