Illustration Friday - Resolve

{Sketchbook, 2009}
This year I resolve to be less uptight and more "go with the flow". This quote is really inspiring to me: " Life isn't about waiting for the storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain." This sketch is for my new blog banner that I will be creating in an almost completely traditional illustration method. I can't wait to get it all finished up and put 'er up!
