Colored Sketch of My Daughter Annabelle

Over the last three weeks, I have had an abundant and overwhelming burst of creativity in writing as well as drawing. Ever since my daughter was born (she’s 10 months now), I have wanted to get in a good sketch of her. Today, I did just that. I touched off the sketch by throwing it into Adobe Illustrator CS4 to create a nice full-color vector. While this isn’t a vector (it’s a JPEG) and though it looks a lot different on my Dell Latitude D620 laptop (inferior graphics card) as compared to my work computer, a Lenovo Thinkpad desktop, it still makes me smile. I think it turned out well and I love the colors.

    Dude, not only is that awesome, it looks just like her. I wondered if you still drew anymore.

    • Thanks. I’ve wanted to do this ever since she was born. Funny thing. Growing up, you knew me. I drew all the time. All the time. Like most people, the older I got, the less I drew — particularly as the adult years came into be. But lately, that creative spark has returned, and not just with drawing. With writing. Heck, even playing music. Honestly, having a daughter, being a father, has given me this whole new outlook on the world. I have such a different perspective on things. Sometimes I feel like I can see through the eyes of a child again. I really feel this drawing shows that. Just with the colors. If that makes sense.
