Illustration Friday - Forgotten
In the present, I forget where I put my keys.
So, I was inspired to make my own key chain and depict some forgotten items.
Writing in cursive - ask someone born in the late 1990s to do this and they will complain - "It's too hard and takes too long."
Card Catalog - "You mean that there were actual cards?"
Hose - "They were worn everyday? Not just for a wedding day or some romantic event?"
Tie a ribbon - "Who does this anymore, besides the Boy and Girl Scouts?"
I rolled up and glued some glossy paper on some string and made the beads of the key chain. I recycled the top of a soda pop can to join the key chain to the ribbon. The background is an old book with watercolor washes.
