IF: Trail


It’s been almost 3 months since my last IF post. A year ago, I couldn’t imagine not posting weekly but so things change and we have to adapt.

2010 It’s been an interesting year. Old doors have opened up. I once thought that my career as a designer/web designer was a thing of the past, simply because I could not balance deadlines and a family. I guess it is all about timing… my kids are a bit older and I have more time to dedicate to projects and clients, which works out quite well.

I still dream with illustrating a children’s book someday, but at the moment I’m listening to the universe and what it wants me to do…. And it is to design … design … design! And I love it!

I do miss my daily drawings and drawing with a kid’s perspective. So I am going back to the beginning and why I started this blog 2 years ago and it is just to draw for fun, just not posting as often perhaps…

This week’s post for IF was inspired by my son. Lately, when he gets upset he says he wants to run away, of course we talk it out and he realizes that home is where he wants to be. Anyway, I thought of this little bunny packing his most precious items and some bread in his pocket (like Hansel and Gretel)… and wondering down a trail.

I hope you enjoy the post and thanks for stopping by!

Aww... you definitely got the sad "running away" face expression.

I believe in just listening to the universe. If you love what you do, thats what matters in the end!

Way to go... listen to your gut. It's ALWAYS right. However, I will miss your words about your path in the children's book industry.
I really love the little bunny... so sad to see him dragging his little wagon filled with treasures.
My son has been talking about the running away thing lately... it's so hard to not personalize that! We have looong discussions too and thankfully he hasn't actually made it out the door yet!

I'm glad you're busy and striking a balance. And I'm also glad you are illustrating again for the fun of it. :)

Awwww, my heart is breaking for this little bunny! Such a sad little face. Looks like he's packed some good essentials, though. The stuffed cow is adorable!
