Illustration Friday: CHOOSE

This week, I CHOOSE to finish an Illustration Friday entry. I swore to myself that this one wouldn't go the way of my half-finished "Tales and Legends" entry or my discarded "Soar" drawing or the abandoned "Blanket" idea that never made it from my brain to the page. Ah, the power of choice (and, um... snow days.)

Choose to be a treehugger! How?
1. Use both sides of your paper, then make things out of it, then recycle it, then buy recycled paper.
2. Plant a tree. Do it yourself or pay someone else to.
3. Get yourself outside--whether it's your backyard, the park around the corner, or a state park. Spend some time in nature, looking at trees, walking among trees, and if you feel so moved... hugging them.

Why? Because we need trees as much as trees need us.

  1. Thanks for your kind words on my post! We are both thinking trees this week... very nicely done & good advice too. I always feel guilty about the quantity of paper I consume! And I love the bread & justice apron. What a great idea.

  2. I love the work on your blog, and trees are some of my favourite people (we live in the biggest man-made urban forest in the world here). I think artists do really appreciate paper, even if they go through a lot of it.
    Thanks for your comment, and yes, the fish are pink and white marshmallow ones that were always part of the candy selection - don't see them any more, though.

  9. Love it! We're tree huggers too. I heard a great suggestion yesterday- cut out the back of the envelopes in your junk mail and use them for doodling!
