Illustration Friday - Communication

I have not participated in Illustration Friday in a long time. I recycling some archived art and dedicating this to my friend Katie, who is having a baby. I have been giving her alot of grief about sellling her sexy, high-heeled snake-skin boots now because your feet grow at least a size and trading them in for some Dexters. I have stopped that now because I remember when someone told me I wouldn't care about a clean house after birth that I was horrified and said, I will always have a clean house. And eat those words now. Clean house, shoes, new clothes, no sleep ... all of that takes a backseat when you are "communicating" with your baby! Before and after birth. Of course, "communication" takes on a whole new meaning when your baby turns 15, but I will tell her those horror stories about that later. ;) Looking back, I can say it is all fun, Katie, enjoy the moment, each one!

It's true how things change after you have a baby... I haven't slept through a single night since my son was born - almost 25 years ago! I really like this illustration - the interplay of arcs is excellent, especially in the black! It's almost abstract!
