I was sitting here, ready to do some Illustration Friday action, but the prompt hasn't been updated! I'm paralyzed with anticipation!
Well, okay. Maybe nothing that dramatic. But every time I go over to check for a new prompt, it still lists "Fragile" from last week. So Wolfgang was over there doing a cool Batman with his new art toys, and I was here paralyzed when...
In came another summer storm. But what a storm it was! China, of course, was her typical basket case self with the thunder. But this time, even tough guy Napolion joined in. Literally:
Eventually the thunder was drowned out by the sound of a crazy hail storm. Strangely, China was totally chill with that, even though it sounded like we were being bombarded with machine gun fire. This went on for about 2 hours, which is excessive for us. Thank goodness.
Eventually, things calmed down. I went out among the shredded trees to inspect our two vehicles that we have parked on the side of the house. No hail damage to either, but what's wrong with this picture?
Ugh, the windows are all rolled down to let fresh air - and gallons of rain - in. Oh well, it'll dry.
That white car in front is my parents' car. Neither my mom nor my dad can safely drive anymore, so we have the car. It's a good little car, 2000 Toyota Echo.
I did this sketch of my dad from an old blurry photo while waiting for Illustration Friday to tell me what to draw.
He turns 90 tomorrow.
