An illustration I recently completed about thinking positive. It's a new year, and despite tragedies occurring all around the world (Haiti immediately springs to mind), we all do our best work when there's hope/positive thinking. I read recently that approximately 50% of American households donated to the earthquake relief effort in Haiti- that kind of outpouring goes a long way to OFFER hope.
The quote I used in the illustration is a little pedestrian when considered with what I wrote above, but I just love the message it sends to us as individuals:
"The average pencil is seven inches long, with just a half-inch eraser- in case you thought optimism was dead." -Robert Brault
