Illustration Friday: SCALE


My first IF contribution in an extremely long time. Hello from my new hom in NM - I've missed everyone!
This is a quick little spot illustration. I was thinking about scales and Justice and Libra and then I thought doing a portrait of Libra... but then I remembered, it's Thursday. This has to be done today, this has to be done quickly. So I moved on to thinking about doing a drawing of something showing scale... a penny WITH something. But that idea was simplified down to what is basically a universal scale tool: a penny, or any coin. It was fun, and it was really quick. I didn't even notice the time. I guess that's a good thing. :)

Welcome back! I'm always using coins to draw circles, so I know exactly where you're coming from. The trick is to not use them for measuring the rest of life.
