This morning, Wolfgang and I snuck out while his brothers were still in bed and went to the grown-up art store.  Omigosh, so many toys!  I was good, though, and only got a couple of pencils.

After we returned, I was ready to make a contribution to this week's Illustration Friday where the prompt is "fragile". 

Wolfgang and I had been discussing his damaged eyeglasses on the way home, so I chose that for my "fragile" subject.  Then I decided to put them on a person.  Then I decided to make the person damaged too.

What's the fragility?  His eyeglasses?  His nose?  His ego?  His hairline? 

I think he's had better days.

Is he really fragile? He has warm eyes. That's what I notice the most. Great drawing!

Confidence. A bit on the fragile side.
A couple of extra art supplies mighta helped him out, methinks.

The more time I spent with him, the more I liked him. Maybe that's what "warmed" his eyes?

He does have a bit of a "yeah, but you should see the other guy" look...

Depends on who hit him!
