Hi Journal & Friends,
Yes, it's time for another....
And the Toon Tuesday Challenge continues!! Dust off your crayons, sharpen those scissors, untangle your yarn, focus that camera lens, rinse out those paintbrushes, sharpen dem colored pencils! Lets have us some FUN on this journey to wellness. Let's not worry about the food parties and focus on loved ones and enjoying our journies! (Oh, and check out Alan's Toon Challenge and Giveaway over at Foolsfitness, here).
Last Thursday, Alan at Foolsfitness posted a great Toon of a mouse fighting a giant...?? foot (here). I loved it. He drew it first on paper, then colored it digitally (on his computer). WELL! I was intrigued. I don't have a stylus (a device to hold like a pen or brush) so I used my good ol' mouse, and went to town on a Christmas drawing. Drawing with the mouse was...well, challenging. Kinda like drawing with a brick. But it was different, and I had fun. I have officially put a drawing stylus on my Wish List.
I originally created this illustration in black and white only, because it was part of a series done for a local newspaper. I thought it would be fun to try to color it digitally... and here are the before and after results (click to enlarge).
I would love for anyone else to join us on Toon Tuesday... or Funny Friday... or Silly Saturday... or whatever day tickles your fancy. Use whatever medium you like. No need to be a "professional"... just enjoy yourself. If you are slow like I am, and start now, you might even get one finished by the year 2010! LOL!!
From Dr Phil's book: "It's about changing yourself from the inside out, so that being what is fit and healthy for you is as natural and as normal as breathing."
