A Profound Shift
The illustrations above are for a client I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. Johnny Bregar makes awesome, toe-tappin' family music, and if you have young ones in the house, you should definitely check him out.
Johnny has commissioned me to do six illustrations for his new website--but here's a sneak peak. Johnny's music is a little bit folk, a little bit bluegrass, and a whole lot of fun for the whole family (my three-year-old and I have regular dance parties whenever 'Mac and Cheese' comes on).
Last week, we had visitors in town for the holiday weekend. Long time friends, we hadn't seen each other since becoming parents.
Witnessing that shift in others is profound.
Becoming a parent pushes, pulls, and molds you into something that is richer with more depth, leaving the person you were forever changed for the better (even if it is with more gray hair).
Make no mistake--this character building process is no walk in the park. But I wouldn't trade it for the world.
Also, for the month of July, 10% of what I sell will go to The Art Students League of Denver, a local organization that focuses on providing opportunities for artists of all ages and abilities to study and work with regionally and nationally recognized working artists. From their website:
"ASLD is an inclusive and inspiring art community where members of all abilities are guided by professional artists to reach their highest potential."
