New Sketches = New Friends

I promised myself I'd get this done and finished by Wednesday (today). Alas, It is not so. I think I will be motivated by showing it unfinished in its sketchy state, and by having to confess that I missed one of my own self imposed deadlines.

Here's my rough sketch. I did this last week for 'School Lunch' and was up burning the midnight oil on it Sunday when I checked WaWe.In my exhaustion I thrilled to see how perfectly it met this week's topic.
Then I ran (literally) and tucked myself into bed.

I promise you'll see it in entirety before the end of the week. I'm a little annoyed at the composition of our hero, somehow that sandwich always lines up with the end of that bench!

OOOh Amber! OMG how absolutely WONDERFUL!!! If this is the bones I can't wait to see it all colored in! I just adore all the action and the conversations that are going on. I can hear the chatter of the children. Great work.

This is a really wonderful illustration! I love drawings with lots of kids doing their own thing, and you've really captured that. Great expressions and gestures!
