Menagerie 3 Minus 1 & Pain In The Neck – IF “Linked”

I was wondering what I could post for Illustration Friday’s topic Linked. So I let the word just bounce around in my head all day. And smack, every kind of link imaginable kept coming up ie. braid, quilts, and then it hit me; Family, How much more than that can people be linked? We don’t always like our family, but we will always love them, because we share a link. This is one of my most favorite captured moments of my sister, brother and I by my Dad; there are four of us, but the baby sister hasn’t made her debut just yet.

So my next thought would be to make sure I show her as well… “Pain In The Neck,” and the title is just the tip of the iceberg.

All of us are linked through family and I think sometimes everyone needs to remember that. I just think back to when we were all at home together and a lot of those memories do make me laugh.  And if you really try to think about “Linked”  I even started wondering about the missing link or a skeleton…. but I am glad I chose the drawing or drawings I did, because they mean alot to me and to my family.

    She definitely looks like she’s got some good stories associated with her!
