The C Was Catapulted by The Boy

I received my walking papers yesterday by the job. Economic downturn, cuts, etc. Wasn't a complete surprise: pull out your exit strategy when the boss casually asks you whether and where the project you're working on is backed up.

So I did the cardboard box shuffle and quickly emptied my office and got away. While I was doing a couple miles on the elliptical after I got home I looked over and saw this charcoal piece the boy did a year or two ago in school. We've been meaning to hang it but haven't gotten to it.

I really love the dark drama of his lines and his sense of humor. I had a chuckle to myself thinking that "The McGlinch Was Catapulted".

I'll keep plugging away on drawings while I look for a bridge to rebuild.

Thanks, John Young. Maybe now I'll have time to check out the donut-aroma-infused new office. I'll give a shout when I head into WC to see if you're around.

Aargh! Bad news... but great drawing. Thanks for sharing it and your thoughts about it.

Best of luck, Mr. Talent! (Hope you have plenty of Post-Its at home!)
