Illustration a Day gnaws into my head and poos another victory:
I almost collaged this one. I drew a couple quick sketches and contemplated using a mix of Illustrator, Photoshop, and pencil and paper, but I couldn't find my Dixon Ticonderoga, so I decided to go fully AI CS3 yet again. It's hard to trust a drawing that is birthed from the tip of a Sanford product of any caliber.
By the way, did you know Dixon Ticonderogas are no longer made in the good ol' USA? Mexico. Weird.
