This week's Illustration Friday prompt is "Lost".
Truth is, my interest in doing the artsy stuff has been lost since the fire. It all seemed a bit pointless. If not for my desire to not break my Illustration Friday streak (started in January of 2010), I probably wouldn't have submitted anything these last three weeks.
So when I saw the prompt, I was familiarly uninspired. But I gave it a go, thinking I wanted to do something Hansel-and-Gretel-esque.
Horrifying story isn't it? A brother and sister abandoned in the woods. They think they find a happy place, but turns out that they are really meant to be dinner for a witch?
But they're too smart for the cannibalistic witch, and they escape the not-so-happy house. PLUS, they get treasure, find their way home, lose the mean step-mother, and live happily ever after.
I admit that I enjoyed drawing this, following my trail of ultra-fine Sharpie.
