What It's All About

Tightrope Walker Print The above images are for a series of circus illustrations that I am working on this week. They aren't finished-- these are the final color sketches. Next step is to take both images into Photoshop to add textures and shading. Stay tuned for the final artwork.

Along with families everywhere, we celebrated mother's day last weekend. Being a mom is hands down the hardest, most fulfilling, exhausting, magical thing I have ever done.

It pushes, pulls, and stretches me in ways I can barely wrap my head around--on a daily basis.

But amid the exhaustion and the relentless testing of my resolute yet finite patience, there are these magical moments. Tiny glimmers in time that almost bring me to my knees, breaking my soft, gooey heart wide open...

Sometimes when I stop and really look at my daughter, my breath catches in my throat, and I'm sure she is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Anywhere. Ever.

Or when she crawls into my lap for a quick snuggle and I can breath in the sweet smell of her skin--before she is off to empty my entire spice cabinet onto the kitchen floor.

Being a mom isn't for everyone. And for those who chose to abstain, more power to you. This is a job best left to those who have two feet in the game.

But for all of you that have chosen the path of motherhood: Happy Mother's Day. You are doing truly incredible work.
