An illustration I made for Ginger.

At first I was kind of stumped on what to draw for her. I was really excited to do it, but the more I thought about it, the more I felt like this illustration was something kind of personal - more than I initially thought it would be. To be too deep and over-analytical - this illustration would be a part of me that would be on her wall and she would look at it everyday until she decided it sucked and take it down. That kind of weirded me out and I began to put a nonsensical and unnecessary pressure on myself and went into a little lull of not knowing what to do.

Ginger and I talked about what she wanted, and she kept it quite open, to think of it as a sort of hello from me to her.

And so - Hello Ginger. This is for you and I hope you like it.

And for everyone else - this is such a good quote (from Albert Camus!) and is always something nice to remember.
