Illustration Friday "Welcome"

"Good to be back"

Its always nice to get a warm welcome after you've been away for a while. In just over a week I'll be heading off to England to visit family and friends. Its been over 5 years since we were last there and to say we are looking forward to it is an understatement.

My daughter (4) has never met her Grandparents and my son (5) was only 6 months old the last time we were there. I'm sure they will be welcomed with open arms, so this weeks topic seemed quite appropriate.

  3. Wow, that worked out nicely with your personal life as well eh? Great fun illustration. I like the simplicity, yet the powerful bond they seem to have. :) Have a great time in England-- I bet you're excited to see how your kids would react to seeing their Grandparents for the first time. ;) Maybe it'll inspire you to do some illustration for it! Keep posting!
