Since about December last year, this household has been alive with Dragons. Dreamworks Dragons to be exact. Myself, and both my two girls have been madly watching every little bit of this world we can get our hands on, particularly my youngest who recently had her fifth birthday and a Dreamworks Dragons party to celebrate.

I’ve dug up a cartoon that I never I’ve never shown at Sunday Sketches (in fact it was drawn the week after I posted my first ever Sunday Sketches submission back in November 2010). He’s here sitting on my hard drive doing nothing much and as he is a cute little thing, I thought it might be worth bringing him out.
This painting was done nearly two years ago (full post about it here) and was also for Illustration Friday. Done in craft paint before I had any idea of what I was doing and while my youngest ws still a baby so done at the speed of light, but I have to say, despite its simplicity, there is something about those hands…and the fact it was an answer to the prompt ‘afterwards’.
It has been a long time since I’ve participated in Illustration Friday, (past efforts) but it is a great challenge to play in with some absolutely fantastic artists participating, so I’ve been looking for some inspiration in response to their challenges for some time now. I finally was determined enough to sit down and actually work at it and I came up with a little Life Inspired to hopefully be a vague answer to the challenge word ‘teacher’.
