Holy smokes this one took me a while! I decided to try something different for a change: my patience. I typically don't like taking more than a day to work on any single piece. I get too impatient and/or start second guessing myself. This time I had an idea and stuck with it. Even though my mind was telling me that it was stupid or that it wouldn't make sense or would be too hard to see. I had also skipped the past couple IF themes so I thought I owed it to whoever to put more effort, or at least time, into this week's piece. Even after I had finished all those freakin' lines I felt like there was still something missing. I figured out at the last minute that I needed to put the cap for the marker ( that's what that little black blob is) on the window sill. For whatever reason, that seemed to complete it for me. I know there are bigger issues that I should have corrected like, "where's the glass for this window?" or "aren't the shutters supposed to open to the inside of the room?". Oh, well. At least I got the marker cap.

So here's my entry for this week's Illustration Friday theme: Refresh. Etch-a-Sketch was the first thing that popped in my head. I just got back into town from a frustrating, out-of-state business trip and I had a ton of gobbledeegoop swimming around in my head. I just wished I could shake my head and make all the nonsense disappear. But, drawing this seemed to work just as well.
