Illustration Friday: Hibernate

30 September 2011

I love watching Little Bee sleep. She looks so peaceful… so unlike when she’s awake… and I join with her afternoon hibernation as I need to rejuvenate myself.

Thinking of adding colours to my drawing… we’ll see…

I was waiting for Little Bee to fall asleep and was wondering if we might need to take her to our bed again tonight. She had a really high temperature last night and I’d rather her be with me when she’s ill.

Then I thought about all three of us on the bed and how Hubby must wish that there is a bit more space. Don’t get me wrong, the bed is big enough if we keep to our space but, for a little person, Little Bee tends to take up half of the bed!

Then I started thinking about sibblings squabbling… and if you have to share your room with your sibbling, don’t you wish you could actually build a wall in between when they start to annoy you? Wonder if that idea ever crossed my older brother’s mind.

IF: Imperfect (Egg)

August 5th, 2011

This morning I asked Little Bee (was known as Bubba Bee) to draw an egg and this was what she drew. It’s not perfect but it’s a perfect egg for a 23 month old toddler to draw.

IF: Perennial

Why do I associate certain words with certain things? Like this week’s topic. When I saw ‘perennial’ the first things that went through my head is plant after plant. So, I decided to look up the meaning of the word and I quite like – “lasting an indefinitely long time”… that’s what I hope love is.

I was too late for last week’s entry to Illustration Friday ‘Remedy’ as I couldn’t figure out how to set up the scanner. D’OH! But I think my sketch of a very small Bubba Bee (she must have been less than 6 months then) fits this weeks title too… as with pictures/drawings/sketches… you capture a moment and it stays as it is… and sometimes when I look at Bubba Bee, I just want her to stay ‘small’ as long as possible.

Two cats eyeballing each other. A start of a fight? A start of a friendship? Let’s just enjoy the dance until they make up their minds!
