This is another exercise from Bert Dodson's book Keys to Imaginative Drawing, where you make some kind of drawing of plants (or, as he suggests, tangled clothesline) and then photocopy it several times and draw some people behind it. This is my first one. I spent several hours on it yesterday, but I'm very pleased how it turned out.

I have been thinking and thinking about how to sneak this picture in under the topic "sneaky," and it really was this Illustration Friday topic that got me thinking about making the picture in the first place, but this boy is definitely NOT sneaky. He may be obscured by some very strange plants (and they ARE real--I drew them from a photo in one of my perennials books), but he is very present in the world.
