I like to draw.
Correction- I LOOOOOOOOOVE to draw and paint and illustrate and create and , well, you get the picture .
I’m addicted .
Its a fact .
And because I love to draw, I started drawing for the Facebook 52 Week Illustration Challenge . And , the theme for this week was to illustrate something about “texture.”
So what the heck , (I hear you say dear reader ) does all of this have to do with the Men …and Hair?
Let me explain .
I like blokes ( dictionary definition – Aussie for “men”) . And I do believe that many of the male species or “blokes” in the world get a ” bum rap ” these days . ( bum rap : dictionary definition- Aussie for unjust accusation, verdict, or punishment for bad behaviour)
And it is true , some men deserve to be justly accused of said “bad behaviour “.
Most of you blokes don’t deserve this “bum rap ” . And that’s not nice . In fact , it sucks ( let’s not mince words here)
So in today’s blog post , I celebrate the blokes of the world .
Let me explain , again .
5 days ago , I sat bemused , perplexed and uncertain, contemplating ” How on earth am I going to draw for the 52 Week Illustration Challenge something on the theme of “texture ” ?? I turned my head and gazed around my household, whereupon my eyes rested on the noggins ( dictionary definition : Aussie for “heads” ) of the 3 gorgeous men in my life – my 17 year old son with full thick locks cut in the current trend of a brush held upside down , my 19 year old son with the makings of a small beard and clean shaven jaw , and my gorgeous , long suffering hardworking 47 year old childhood sweetheart husband who is … well , let’s not go into details , but let’s just say , his hair has changed somewhat since we met in 1986… ( as has my waistline …)
And as I gazed at the 3 delightful blokes and pondered the theme of “texture”, my brain went ” BINGO !'”
I’ll let my illustration explain the rest …
Much love to all my readers
