Illustration Friday: Magnify

My focus will be changing. Next week I start online classes for my Masters in Instructional Design at Western Governors University. Long complicated story on how I came to this decision, the short of it is that it is time for a number of social, economic and personal reasons. When you start down a path like this you never quite know where you will end up--but it is my hope that I can use this training to further the mainstreaming of art education, and expand the horizon's of educational media. (I have more hope after Arne Duncan's letter to educators about arts being a core subject.)
I also hope that I can maintain a relatively regular presence on my blog with IF illustrations, but I don't know how much time I will have. A big thanks to all my friends out there for your support so far.
