I.F. Dec.23 2011 "Messenger"

Inspired by the Illustration Friday challenge word: "Messenger"

In this busy season I had plenty of time to consider this word and its associations while driving across the city, buried to my elbows in cookie dough and surrounded by children enjoying themselves at the top of their lungs.

Messenger and message. We receive them together, and somehow have to untangle our responses to one from the other. Easier said than done, at times.

Inspired by the quote: "A composer knows that music is written by human beings for human beings and that music is a continuation of life, not something separated from it". - Hanns Eisler

"Brigade" Illustration Friday Challenge Dec. 2/2011

Inspired by the Illustration Friday word: Brigade

I enjoy working in response to a quote. This week I found:

"Some of us are like a shovel brigade that follow a parade down Main Street cleaning up". - Donald T. Regan

There was no getting around it: elephants were going to feature in this image.
