As everyone engages in the typical back to school routines, I can only reflect on all the things still left to do with "Summer of Fun". No matter how close we are to the Labor Day weekend, the unofficial "end of summer", I have to mention that the season has a whole SIX weeks remaining. This summer was planned to include group paintball battles, river tubing, trolley pubbing, speedway racing, camping, attending a Durham Bulls' baseball game and many other activities. In anticipation of all the fun that remains, I finished some vector art today created in Adobe Illustrator from an original pencil sketch. Being that this would be my first time experiencing a lot of these activities, the excitement still bounces and there's no way I'm giving up on these plans before September 22nd!
I am happy about the fun I have had so far, however. Although it has not felt like much time has been set aside from work for fun, I've volunteered often, traveled a little, attended a few concerts, cookouts, and weddings. Of course, creating art always falls into my category of fun, and I've had some opportunities to draw and paint so far, i.e. the J Cole drawing I thought I could finish before the Dollar & A Dream Raleigh Tour. That did not go as planned, but feel free to browse some progress pictures of the drawing below. More summer updates to come... Enjoy!
