This week's Illustration Friday word is Rescue. So I was trying to think of when I last felt "rescued." And I think I feel rescued when ever I am in my own little world, drawing, crocheting, reading, and doing all the little things I enjoy doing. And I got to pay homage to Danny Gregory and his book An Illustrated Life, which rescued me from the lack of inspiration. I really don't think I'd still feel so inspired to draw so consistently if I hadn't come across this book. Plus... it lead me to Illustration Friday!

My Illustration Friday drawing for this week's word: Brave. I can remember the first time I jumped off the high dive like it was yesterday. I have no idea how old I was. Maybe eight? I stood up there for awhile. Too scared to jump, too proud to climb back down that ladder. When I finally jumped and came to the surface, I remember swimming toward my mom who was waiting for me by the side of the pool. I was laughing. I did it! When I climbed out, she hugged me and I burst out crying. It wasn't because it hurt when I hit the water, or because it scared the crap out of me. It was just so emotional!
