A quick post to share a sketch for this month's Hero Arts Contest (see below).  This was a tough one (actually none of them this month are easy) but this is what I came up with.  I also did another one which I posted in my flickr gallery.  Truly amazing that I manage to do two of them.  ;)  I like this balloon one better (although I'm not sure if I love it), hence the reason I'm blogging it.  Yes, I am so shallow.

You have until Thursday to get in on the first round of the contest (which also includes a sunshine and showers theme).

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you are having a great week.
