Drawing A Day #23: High and dry

July 14th, 2010

Today’s D.A.D. came out of something I’m really talented at: overthinking. It’s called High and dry:

I tend to be the one holding the umbrella, even on a nice day, since I tend to think of the worst case scenario in any given situation… then I often end up being pleasantly surprised. Even when something not-so-great happens, I usually stay pretty chipper… because I’ve usually already considered a worse outcome. (All this is metaphorical, big-picture stuff… in real life, I typically forget to bring an umbrella out if it rains, and I don’t even own a pair of rainboots ;)

Expect the worst, hope for the best — works for me!

As for the style, it’s slightly out on a limb for me. I still did it digitally, but I used watercolour as the medium. A couple of closer-ups:

Time to find some puddles to jump in.
