Well, it’s been since New Years since I was active in any meaningful capacity on Tumblr, but now with summer underway I have more time on my hands and figured I would try to get back on the (cyber)horse and post the few meager things I’ve drawn during that interval.
Over Christmas break in Houston I was lucky enough to finally get to meet my mom’s friend Caryl, who she has always gushed about but I had no personal experience with. Needless to say, Caryl is WONDERFUL and was so nice to all us marauding out-of-towners barging into her house, eating her food, reading her magazines, and creepily photographing her cool antiques (okay, those last two were just me). She has 2 equally lovable dogs, Monet and Lenny, Lenny being an elderly retired therapy dog. Sadly, around March/April we learned by way of a letter that Caryl had had to make the difficult decision to put Lenny to sleep because he just could not get around any more. She invited me to contribute a sketch of Lenny for a memorial shadowbox she is making in his honor, so I did this based on a picture I took on our vacation.
