After this past week of destruction and immense sadness, I was ready for something uplifting. The Ukuleles were perfect – made me cry another bucket load, but for a different reason.
Here is the link to The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain and to their DVD – Anarchy in the Ukulele.
For many years I subscribed to Ron Leishman’s Toonaday Digital Clipart. I have used many of Ron’s toons in my blog posts, as you can see in the following gallery. Ron is a fellow Canadian and Albertan (Alberta is a Province in Canada). Though I have never met him, I have traded emails with him on several occasions, and he has generously created several toons that I requested.
I sometimes combine several of his toons to illustrate my story and that makes me appreciate the immense variety of topics he has covered!
I didn’t appreciate how hard it is to draw until I tried to do it myself. It is one thing to be able to say, “Of course I know the difference between a pirate and a fire hydrant.” It is quite a different thing to remember enough detail about each to draw them well.
Which one is your favourite?
