B is for Being


2 B OR NOT 2 – © Sue O’Kieffe 2009

Hamlet’s famous soliloquy was the inspiration for this B. How can anyone stay in an existential funk with these happy summer colors?

But then, alas, I was reminded  of our be-loved honey bee and everything this buzzy worker does for our well being.




I am glad to see corporate America getting  involved with green issues. Haagen-Dazs has lots of information on their site on how you can help save the bee. At the very least, you can buy some of their ice cream. How sweet is that?

Illustration Friday: Intricate



I had hoped to have more of my alphabet posted during the month of February when Words was the theme over at Creative Every Day. I found, instead, a need to honor my body and spend some time away from the computer.  Creativity does seem to run in a cycle, and I needed to take heed.  Last night I put the finishing touches on three more letters for the doodled alphabet I am slowly working on.

So, what is H for?

I say it is for heart, head and hand. H also is for hair (the curly kind) and hare (the bunny kind). H is happy and friendly, says  hello and hi, enjoys the sun (helios) and the steady drone of bees in the hive.

I have always wanted to enter a post for Illustration Friday, and I think this H will fit in nicely with this week’s theme of Intricate.

What else do you think  H stands for?
