IF Detach


I drew this illustration from my old boyfriend Eric before I moved away to California. It took a long time to detach myself from him, but I finally got used to being without him.
I still think about Eric from time to time, he was one of my best friends as well as my boyfriend, but I guess people come into our lives for different reasons whether to teach us things or just to help lift our spirits in times of transition either way it's nice that they can inspire cute art as well. :)

This is lovely and fun and sweet. I love the life in it. Very nice and - sniff - makes me feel a little sentimental.

So very sweet. Saying goodbye is always so hard. You got the sad be-brave-smile down to a T. Wonderful colors and style.

I agree with you. Totally. Every person in our life is here for a reason. Eric was a great inspiration. The illo is wonderful! And it doesn't look sad. I like how you present the moment of parting. And I love the colours you chose.
