Sorry – Illustration Friday
I just couldn't get inspired with this week's topic, "sorry." I kept coming up with the same kind of image...somebody looking sad with a look of forgiveness on their face. I sketched several rough drafts...a child sitting in the corner looking over his shoulder, a woman in tears holding a handkerchief, and a child looking up at his parent with both a look of horror and a look of sorrow on his face. But, I wasn't happy with any of these sketches because I wanted something different.
After taking the weekend off from thinking...I finally decided to do something VERY simple to fulfill my personal commitment of submitting a new illustration each week. So, I finally decided to think of other ways to show how you are sorry. This led to a dozen roses with a card simply stating, "I'm sorry"...which evolved into the illustration above... a "Dear John" letter...but, in my case, a "Dear Louise" letter. This was my inspiration for this week's Illustration Friday.
