My friend Kelly DeSousa tagged me in Facebook with the ‘5-Day Art Challenge’; months later, here we go! I did these drawings in Crayon, several weeks ago when I was home sick and didn’t feel like doing anything else.

These days I can get my hands on a huge tub of countless colors, including glittery and metallic… And all these years after sitting in my parents’ bed drawing while home sick from school, I still grab Lilac and Periwinkle as my favorites.

I remember refusing to use yellow because I didn’t think it showed up on the paper. I still think that, but now I understand ‘glow’ a little better, so I use it when I need that light.

I think I’m supposed to tag someone else to take up the Challenge – anybody wanna go for a round?
