"There is relish to be found in competition -- in having put forth the best within you."
Happy Illustration Friday! This week's prompt is "Proverb".
So I thought, Proverb? What can I do with that? And then I had to leave to spend the day at Meego's school, for today was the annual Field Day.
Yes, field day! Such fun! Healthy competition amongst friends, and everybody gets a ribbon! (even though we all know that 6th place is really last place...).
This year I was assigned the long jump. So, it seemed only fitting that I would do a competition based proverb.
This is a guy in the midst of a long jump competition. As it formed on my paper, I think it took on a rather crucifixion-esque undertone. That was unintentional on my part, but perhaps subliminal due to the prompt.
Plus I do have a bit of an internal competition with myself on these Illustration Fridays. I want to get my entry posted on the day the prompt is released (they last a week). I managed to get this one scratched out in time to get the burgers on the grill for dinner. Now THAT was a race!
