Things have been so busy the last year that I completely neglected doing any personal or sketchbook work. Commercial work stretches my skills and problem solving capabilities - my personal work keeps the flame for illustration burning. In my little universe, I need both to be my best. So for the last few weeks, I put a little time aside daily to work on a personal series of illustrations called "I'll call you back." Here is the first result. You don't have to have eight children to feel like this.
