I like to sketch with the Illustration Friday themes as a springboard for ideas. I sketched this last week during naptime in my 3yr old class (keep in mind that it’s fairly dark in the room, and we only have about 30 minutes of “me time” – which is usually interrupted repeatedly – while the kids are resting on the floor next to us). That explains why the genie’s fist has a thumb where his pinkie finger should be! Oops! 🙂 (I thought that looked weird!) My scanner was being irritable, so I didn’t post it in time for that week’s theme. Thought I would share it with you now.
