Illustration Friday - "Might"


Two meanings for "might" here: the camel has the might to carry great loads, and this might be the straw that broke the camel's back. This drawing is inspired by the last month at the homeschool center. We have been using it for the last 6 years, but every year there are a few more requirements, a few more restrictions, a few more burdens handed to us by the public school district. This latest one may just be "the straw," and it's time to look into other options.
Drawn with Micron black pens and Prismacolor markers.
