I’ve set a goal for myself to do more drawing and also to
become more familiar with my watercolor pencils,
since they are very portable and useful in sketching situations.
Using this book by Bert Dodson as a guideline
I’ve done some pencil and pen sketches.
The author encourages stretching the truth.
Making the familiar strange invites
the viewer to see things in a new way.
Since I'm more of an illustrator than and artist;
I’ve put together a series to dramatize a song written in 1970
by a father for his young son.
I’ve put my own twist on it, but then,
that’s what imagination is all about.
Wikipedia says, “The song's lyrics, filled with colorful, dream-like imagery,
led some to believe that the song was about drugs.”
The article continues--the author “has stated in interviews
that the song was actually written for his then three-year old son, Josh.”
Can you name that tune?
