Illustration Friday - Aging
My Old Aunt
Okay, I have to admit that this topic of aging was really hard to do. I thought of doing something about old trees or some vintage something or other, but all I kept coming back to in my mind was the image of my great aunt who passed away several years ago. She was very, very tall, with long arms and legs, and I remember thinking as a child that she was so weird looking - but in a cool way. She was also a very cool person. She never got flustered - ever- and she had a very open and accepting outlook on life and people. Anyway, I then started to think how people pronounce aunt– some say it ahhnt and some say it ant. I fall into the latter category... and, that's how this illustration came to be. I did two, but couldn't decide which I liked best, so I put them together.
