There's been a definite slump in the Adventure posts, long enough that I wondered if I'd ever do another, but in the past couple of days a new one has found its way onto four pieces of 6x9 heavy paper. Reminder to self - Don't try eating chocolate while doing pen and ink work.
Anyway, this is one of the illustrations for the next story which is about a couple of odd experiences I encountered back when I imagined showing paintings in galleries would lead, if not to fame and fortune, at least to a regular income. Hah! Even so, I learned some stuff about what matters but you can read that after it's been written, which at this point is still in my head and not in my documents.
I never envisioned doing Adventures and before I knew it I'd written 14. Some of them are better than others but that's the way things go, isn't it? It's difficult to tell both true and honest stories.. and there is a difference.
Not everything we experience fits into neat, entertaining anecdotes but it's an interesting way of reviewing a life. You can judge whether they're worth the reading time.
Be back soon :-)
