renewal

Jan 1, the first day of the new year! A day for renewal. Of course I resolve to do the same thing I resolved to do last year, which was draw more fun things and post them on this blog. No promises, but that is my hope for the new year.

This is my first drawing of 2010. I have thought that the Progressive girl, Flo would be a great character to draw. That retro look. That hair band. The eye liner. The lipstick. The tricked out name tag. So I drew up this Flo in my sketchbook... added a bit of white pencil, and here you go! My first post

I recognized her right away. I'm going to say that it's because of your excellent artist skills and not because I watch too much TV.

Yup. That's her! I had to look it up cuz for some reason I don't think I've noticed the commercials. In fact, I thought you were talking about Progressive soup. Heh!

Happy NY to you and all the best in 2010, Dougie-J!
