  • Ideas
    by Jessica Douglas

    So, long story short, my buddy Howard said something that sparked an idea in my head. He was kind enough to say 'go for it' to me so... Based on Howard Tayler's words: I have no shortage of ideas. They are like dewdrops, distilling from the atmosphere onto my leafy green brain each morning. I’m fairly sure your brain is the same way. If you don’t think you have any ideas, you probably just need to know how to look for the dewdrops. They’re tiny, they’re fleeting, but they glisten. The roses were inspired by my buddy Steph, who did a painting recently with a ton of them. Everyone agreed that roses would be awesome for the background, so mine are heavily inspired by her queen of hearts painting. Artwork done in colored pencils, watercolor and some unsuccessful tweaking in photoshop to try and make the sparkley dewdrops to show up better.
