Endure #kidlitillustration

When I do these daily pieces, I often don’t have anything in mind when I start. The great thing about making digital art is that it’s easy to erase anything I don’t like, so I approach it with abandon. It’s a freeing feeling. These days I take the oil or watercolor brush and just start making splotches and when it starts to resemble something, I refine it further in that direction. Somehow, this one ended up being an Asian boy, and I drew it partly based on one of hubby’s friends (who did his Ph.D. the same time hubby did, with the same advisor). This guy had a sign above his desk with the word “endure.” I thought it was pretty appropriate for the times, too.
