#55 “Friday Wolf”

From a stranger in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Since it’s Friday today, I thought I might as well display a wolf that was drawn on a Friday.

You know, it’s interesting how the days of the week can develop a specific feeling that accompanies them. But what is perhaps even more interesting is to explore whether or not specific days have a universal feeling that permeates everyone in a given culture.

For example, there is a specific feeling that wells up inside of me on Tuesdays. I’m not really sure how to explain it, but there exists a certain “Tuesday feeling” that I find familiar and am well accustomed to. But is this the same feeling that you experience when you awake on the average Tuesday morning? I’m not sure. How could we even tell? I suppose we could separately make a list of adjectives to describe this feeling and then compare the list, but even then… If we both wrote the word “peaceful,” how would we possibly know whether or not each person’s sense of peace is comparable? Maybe your sense of “peace” is different from mine.

Moving on…

I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed with the artist behind this illustration simply because she used wolf-themed stationary as her canvas and sent her work in an accompanying wolf envelope. When I opened the P.O. box and saw that beautiful package lying there in front of me, I knew that I was in for something special. And even though this artist calls her own wolf and “abomination,” I think we can all agree that this artist thoroughly undervalues her own work. In order to show my appreciation for the submission, I wrote back to this talented artist; and based upon the response that she posted on reddit.com, I think that she was pleased with my reply.

In conclusion, it is Friday today, and I’m sure that feels good to all of us. But why not make the day even better by taking a time out to get in touch with your inner child? Why not draw a wolf?

Shirk your work today and send your wolf artwork to…
