Drawing Experience Imitates Life

Two drawings of the same lifeline. The storyline is of someone who grows from childhood into a man who  craves material success. After years of stress in trying to fit into this idealized system he gets on his bike and races off into his future, finding a satisfying sense of harmony in his love for nature and his adoring family.

It is disappointing to not get it right the first time around, as this man experienced in his life. It is ironic that this drawing storyline is the one I flubbed the first time around as well. Perhaps this second version is also a flub. The way life keeps shifting, I think reevaluation is a constant.

(What was that you just whispered... "change"...?)

(Update: the second drawing pleased the recipient, so "take two" is a "go!")
