I finally get a night off and I don't know what to do with myself! I am so used to coming home and working that I basically panicked about what to do with my free time. I wanted to totally rest and recuperate a bit, but then felt pressured to "DO" something.

So I came up with this quick "next appointment" card! It does follow me facing one of my biggest fears AGAIN this afternoon, with my final visit to the dentist (to complete a root canal procedure!) EEEeeeek! It got me thinking how cool it would be for dentists to have a more "friendly" image for kids! (And some of us grown ups!)

Type the rest here

Hi Ange B,

It's great that you are considering exploring your art in Illustrator! I love it! Once you get the hang of you'll realise that it's just another tool in your artists box. I think it's so important to have a grip on the traditional drawing skills to get the best out of using a computer. I always draw and sketch my images first and then scan and trace them on the computer to create the finished piece. Everyone is different of course, but I find it works for me! Good luck!
