I drew this for Illustration Friday. This week’s word is “tall.” When I read it, I thought of times when my son has volunteered to teach. He’s a tall guy, and some of the small kids love for him to hold out his arm as they swing from it. The kids love a tall, strong, gentle guy. And who doesn’t love the monkey bars?

Beach Tastee Freeze

Illustration of a boy on a beach with a slushie drink.

When I thought of Illustration Friday’s word, “freeze,” I thought of one of my favorite summer treats. Whether you for for Tasty Freeze™, slushies, Slurpees, shaved ice, Italian Ice, Mr Freeze™, snow cone, or any other type or brand, They are just the right treat when you’re on a hot beach!

I drew this using Adobe Ideas for the iPad, then Adobe Illustrator.

I drew this for Illustration Friday. This week’s word is “carry.” It reminded me of an older cartoon I drew. The caption mentioned being on a diet. I thought it worked just fine without the caption. After all, since the word is “carry,” let the balloon be the star on this one!

I began this sketch in Adobe Ideas. I am experimenting with drawing on my iPad.
