Another auspicious entry into Guest Quest by Daily Odyssey super fan Melanie Pritchard! The first person to recognize me in public, and to leave weird messages on my car while I was at work finally got the chance to draw an odyssey, and gee shucks if it aint the cutest ever?!
Since Mother’s Day always seemed to land near finals, it was always pretty hectic the four years I’d been going to SCAD to find the time to buy a card let alot draw one for my Mom, so this year I felt the need to really put my all into a wonderful card. I just wish I could have seen her reaction!
Since she’s lived pretty much all her life on Long Island, and been very close to the beaches, she’s always had a thing for lighthouses, so I figured drawing after a famed spot would be a good start.
I felt pretty good, since she actually thought I’d just drawn my little cartoony self over a pre-exisitng piece of art of the location. That, or she was just trying to feed me ego, like all mothers do. I probably could have done half the work and she still would have loved it, but I went all out goddammit! I love my mom! RAGH!!
