What Color Is The Sky?

In an effort to just do something with some inspiration I was feeling this morning, I decided to follow my own advice to my mom and make something using the Illustration Friday theme of the week, Sky.  This piece is entitled What Color is the Sky?  It was inspired by the latest thing I heard on a radio podcast, of the show Radiolab (such a great show by the way).  If you listen to the 20 minute story about the fact that the color of the sky could be under discussion, you may perhaps feel like you understand my piece here a little more.  :)

This week I taught my first ever section of the Advent Calendar class!  Here are my happy customers and their very fine calendars:

This is me at at 2 and a half!  My mom found this photo and sent it my way this week.  Don't you think this was destiny?

Here I am  33 years later, wearing the one original thing I created today: ear warmer head bands.  Now that the weather is cooling down (today's temps excepted--it was in the high 70s here!), I need these to bike with in the mornings.  They work great under my bike helmet. Yep, pretty stylin'.

Speaking of stylin' on your bike, check out this amazing new website:  They sell great stuff for women to help incorporate biking into everyday life!  And, guess whose bike bands are for sale in the accessories area?  :)
