As we all know, sometimes life’s little challenges can add up and feel downright overwhelming. Often, when that happens, when poop hits the proverbial fan, Tom and I respond by telling each other “Remember, we’re sharks!”
It reminds us that we need to keep moving forward in order to stay alive.
It’s a thing.
A bit dramatic.
It works for us.
When things continue to feel a wee bit FUBAR, we toss the word “Zen” at each other. We do this in an effort to remind each other to breath and let it go… whatever it may be.
This practice helps take the edge off and sometimes it even puts life’s bumps in perspective.
Yesterday, we were ruminating over a few of those very bumps and as I shouted “Zen!” at Tom, he shouted “Sharks, we’re sharks!” at me.
It was then “Zen Shark” was born.
Trying to be Zen Sharks, y’all!

We don’t always know our own strength. The Illustration Friday theme of the week is “strong.” So I thought of the obvious choice. A mouse holding up an elephant… duh.

This kitty-ballerina image (which is a redraw), came to mind a few years ago while staring at my kitty, Ignatz’s feets. I studied admiringly, Iggy’s pristeen white fur and pink toes, bringing to mind the white tights and pink shoes of a prima ballerina. That along with an almost preternatural grace she’s been known to exhibit, while padding, almost toe dancing across the fireplace mantle. She lithely slinks along this 3 inch wide path, past tons of chachkis and photos, with nary an item being knocked over.
The girl’s got mad grace-skills!
Of course, when I have to rescue a terrified, de-tailed lizard from under our bed, one of many she proudly trots into the house, the ballerina image dissipates rapidly. –Sigh.
Click to get better look at Iggy’s feets!

Throughout history, literature and film, dragons have been considered nefarious critters. But I ask you, does Ashley here look odious, depraved or diabolical?
Don’t want to blow smoke up your tush, but I’m planning on setting the world on fire in 2015!
Ok, well, at the very least I’m going to stoke that fire in my belly and get some stuff accomplished!
How’s your 2015 so far?
The Illustration Friday word of the week is “nefarious”, sooo…
