Illustrator Magic

I am not an artist. That needs to be disclosed right off the bat.

But that does not prevent from appreciating this:

This is from Matt Phelan's blog, Planet Ham. Like I said, I don't know anything about drawing, but it seems that capturing this sort of action would be really difficult for an artist. The sense of movement is completely gorgeous - I can just envision, a second after this moment was captured, the boy catching the football and cheering, a big smile on his face.

It's so simple and yet, out of this, I get childhood, innocence, summer, joy, laughter. And I love the ability of an artist and an illustrator to make me feel that way. Bravo to Matt!

Just beautiful. It's the etheric quality that gets me, stunning

Hey, Laura. Thank you so much for this.

It was great meeting you tonight and I hope we get to hang out again sometime.

p.s. Saw Morimoto but could not see what he ordered. Damn.
