Illustration Friday - Magnify


Adriana pleaded with her mom not to leave her alone on her first day of school. Having moved to a foreign country where she didn't speak the language magnified her fear.
I hope this isn't a stretch for this week's Illustration Friday word. I originally set out to draw something in my journal for back to school, and thought, hey, this might work! I remembered my own first day of school, and yes, I was thrown into a school where I couldn't speak English, so I totally relate to this little characters fear, lol!

So true and your painting puts it to life.. Fear of being let with strangers that you can not understand.

I think this is great entry! I can relate to this too. I emmigrated to other side of the world when I was 15 and that first day of high school was terrifying even though I spoke the same language my accent was very strange to them. I love your style such colourful art!!! Great work!
