Surrendering to Imagination

The flood of monstrous creations continues today with one arriving by land and one by sea.  It is hard for me to properly express the joy I have experienced by honoring my dreams of becoming an illustrator.  The more I practice, the better I am becoming and the more I am able to say with fewer marks.  Both of these creatures are incredibly simple and yet I think they could tell a wee tale.  

Will I ever realize my ultimate dream of illustrating a children's book?  I don't know.  I think it is way too early in my illustrating adventure to answer that question but honestly, at this point, it is a question with zero importance.  What is important is that I have fallen head over heels in love with this thing called illustrating, that I have surrendered myself to the wit and whimsy of my imagination, and that I am creating without judgment.  My creations won't be everyone's cup of tea but they suit me just fine.

Your self satisfaction is wonderful to behold...in your words and illustrations. I don't see why you can't illustrate a story of your own.
