I've gotta confess, this is an old watercolour! But I never posted it, because it was my very first attempt at watercolour after years and years of not painting. It's been sitting on my desktop, waiting to be used for something. Every time I look at it, I smile, because this little scuba guy is who led me down the path I am on now! It only seems fitting that he pop up now for Illustration Friday. 

I also like that he's got some cross hatching on him. I don't do much cross hatching now, but maybe I should. I used to be OBSESSED. I hatched everything. It was my primary form of stress relief in university. (My secondary form of stress relief was belting out "Under Pressure" at the top of my lungs) If I would have guessed for any feature to become part of my "style", it would have been that. But here I am, crosshatchless! 

It will probably show up again some time in the future. Things usually do.

Does anyone have awesome weekend plans? I am glutened (I think it was some Montreal Steak Spice that I swear I thought was safe), so I will probably spend the next three days curled up with a hot water bottle. I must live vicariously through you guys.
