Illustration Friday: Aging

When I learned about the topic for the week, I immediately thought of doing a tree age. Y'know those circles that determine a tree's age? Thought better of it. Next, I thought of doing birthday candles.

I'm a big Starbucks fan. Their coffee specials are illustrated on blackboards with colorful chalks. I imitated that art with my submission. Another thing I did, I infused actual images of candle flames ;o)

Great take on it, Don. I dig the symbolism and the chalkiness. :)

Nicely done Don. I really like the chalk on the board effect. Brings back my first grade teaching days.
