Remote




This is my Illustration Friday pic for remote. When I think of remote I think distant. I have a son with autism and a lot of times he is as remote as remote can possibly be. He loves to jump up and down. And eat popsicles, hence the stains on the shirt :-)

The popsicles have made him pop skyward ... popping colour and character :)

Jules,
What a wondeful illustration and description of your son and what inspired you to create this. He looks happy and though remote often times he must also have gifts too! Especially the happiness in jumping and eating popsicles!

I really like your cartoon style of illustration. He looks like a happy kid. I like the popsicle stains.

I love it when illustrations are so personal to the illustrator. I love the illo, too.

another lovely illustration from you. I'd love to know how you produced that gorgeous background.

Thanks everyone. Julie, the background is done in Painter with watercolour brushes.
