Illustration Friday: Fail



Always a good student, Sophie failed to thrive at her new school.

Sometimes I think the biggest bully we have is the one from within....

Hang in there Sophie! I know the beast within as well, that voice that doesn't stop!

Amen. I think I'm definitely my own worst bully! This is very cool..you've got her body language and expression down pat in such few strokes!

Nice. I like the curves you use on the arms and the nose. They create a nice visual rhythm.

Bullies suck. When I was in school, my friends and I would use multi-syllabic English to surreptitiously mock the bullies. Bullies with smarts are a rarity.
