Drawing A Day #45: You hold the key

August 23rd, 2010

At the risk of resembling a hokey motivational poster, today’s D.A.D. is about how much people can affect their own circumstances — it’s called You hold the key:

I’ve found that even in not-so-great situations, I can always control certain things that at least get me to a better case scenario. I believe strongly not only in taking opportunities, but in making them too… and that people often underestimate how much control they can exert on their own outcomes and getting themselves going in the directions they want.

So with that, get yourself pointed in your own personal cardinal north. Spiel over :)

Drawing A Day #31: I know I can

July 28th, 2010

Get ready to chuckle… a friend of mine told me about this video — called Dad Life — and I thought I’d share it here:

So clever and well-produced, I busted a gut all the way through.

Aaaanyway, back to the drawing board. Today’s D.A.D. was inspired by a penny farthing I saw in a store window recently. I always find that they look really difficult to ride, and then decided to draw one being ridden in an even tougher-than-usual situation… but with determination.

It’s called I know I can:

Ever looked back at something you did, and then wonder “how the heck did I ever pull that off???” That’s what this guy’s going to say after he makes it over the hill.

On that note, happy hump day!
