On the Spectrum #57: Physical Graffiti

(click to enlarge)

Today we participated in the Southeast Michigan Autism walk for Autism Speaks.  We had a good time, but it was very cold, very windy.

We did have a little bit of a "drawing on the walls" problem a while back.  Some of the walls that were merely cleaned and not repainted still bear some witness to that. LOL

The drawing shown here is a scaled down copy of one of Michael's.  It's the Viginia Tech Hokie Bird, and I used it once before, waaaaaay back in #12.  Here what the original looks like:

This was from about a year ago, just before #12 was originally put up.

Funny thing... When I got done drawing the scene, but before lettering it, I called Micahel over over and asked him to look at it.  I pointed to him and said, "Who's this?" And he said it was, "Michael." And then to 'Dad' and he's said, "That's Daddy."  Then I pointed to the Hokie Bird and said, "And what heppened here?" And he got this HUGE grin, started laughing hysterically and said, "He was drawing on the walls!"  He really got a kick out of it, probably becasue he knows now that you're not supposed to do that! :)

A little more on 'drawing of the walls' next time too... :)
