My fourth of July was hardly special. As I tried to doze into dreamland last night a little after midnight, some teenagers across the street decided to launch really loud fireworks. No, they are not the most considerate folk. One of my brothers and mom went to a local park for a picnic briefly at lunch time and returned with genuine American cuisine: hotdogs, hamburgers and potato chips. Unlike years past, there was no enthusiam to travel to another park to see fireworks later so we flat-out didn't. My life and life generally will go on.
I made this for my friend Kai. I asked her if she had an idea for a drawing I could do for her. She's infatuated with dinosaurs, thus obviously picked that and specified it should be saying "rawr" and taking a bite out of her name. [The latter I didn't execute as well as I wanted, but oh well.] Then I was inspired to split the whole picture into fourths, making each a postcard. I'd send the dino-postcards at different times and then she'll be able to assemble the drawing like a puzzle. It is not the best free-hand drawing I've done, yet I am excited to know how Kai will like it. I believe the unique concept gives it an edge. :]
