Illustration Friday - Sail

Sail

I really like this week's word! sail is such a beautiful notion and it makes me think of running away and moving fast, I get sick on boats but if I hadn't I know I would love it...

Also, this week's word was dedicated to a woman who died of cancer. My father in law just started another series of cancer treatment, he's been battling cancer for years now, and it keeps coming back. I'm really sad and worried, he's one of the nicest people I know and I really hope nothing bad will happened. I'm angry that he's got to go through it all again. It feels so unfair.

You know how in movies, when some successful business man get sick and have to slow down, he learn to value life and family and understand what's important in life?! Well, he already done all that, and so by movie standards we shouldn't be having this sequel now. But it's not a movie, it's just life and in life people get sick even when there's nothing to be learn from it. He has been extremely positive through all this, and I really admire how he works so hard to keep his routine and not surrender to self pity and a sick state of mind.

I decided that when this series of drawing sales, I'm going to donate the money to the American Cancer society. I guess I just want to feel like I'm doing something and not completely helpless about his illness.

For sell here.
