satellite

Illustration Friday, satellite.Every so often, I like to go to the window, look up, and smile for a satellite picture.
- Stephen Wright

I have been wanting so badly for things to slow down enough to do little art projects for fun again. I decided to make it happen, last night, late.

I rounded up some materials: 1 sharpie, 2 colored pencils, white and back paper, sting, tape, and 1 exacto knife (with a broken tip). For me this weeks topic turned into a challenge to make something happy out of whatever I could find - without waking up Jacinda. I decided satellites reminded me of being a child, should be hanging, and I went with a mobile.
♥ ♥ ♥ Have a wonder filled day!

Love the idea of making this as a "real" satellite - moving objects! Your mobile is awesome! Such a good idea, doing a 3D illo, I think you are right, sometimes we have to say "I am making it, now." if not it keeps orbiting in our heads forefer.... and ever hehe.
