Well this is my submitted image for the April Challenge.

… Your greatest challenge!
Well, what exactly is or was my greatest challenge? I suppose it is the constant struggle to maintain my hues and their saturation. Society, business, social standards, widely agreed codes of conduct, family, friends, love… all demand certain behaviour, dress codes, ways to speak and ways to act. They all demand to adapt and act conforming to what is believed to be normal. This constant adaption however is somewhat desaturating my hues, all those colours that make me what I am. I don’t agree with this system as who is the system demanding to adapt to their beliefs and codes? I don’t belong here at least it feels like it sometimes. I struggle with the constant desaturation fighting against the grey of normal or the shades of boredom. I don’t want to let my personal hues drip and drop out of my ears leaving only shades of grey. No I am constantly fighting to stay as colorful as possible – however it is a demanding challenge to remain your colours without offending those you love, you work with, your business partners and so on. But then – that’s just the way life is and how it works. Adaption without losing your hues, your shades of green, yellow, red, blue, punk, orange, violet the whole spectrum of personality.
My greatest challenge: My Mother in Law passed away on the 1st of March. She lived with us for several years, in her final months we were providing constant care for her until she lost her battle with cancer. My wife has been going through some rough times, i hope i’ve been doing and saying the right things…

Power of Persuasion
I had a little free time on Friday (I didn’t go to the weekly seminar and I was in between a few things), so I took a few minutes for myself and worked on a sketch I’ve been meaning to do for a while now. Once it was done, it seemed to fit with this month’s theme challenge, so here it is.
Power of the Weather
A whimsical sketch that seemed to fit in with this month’s theme challenge. Even though it doesn’t rain everyday, the potential for rain has the power to get me carrying a small, collapsible umbrella everyday I go to work (I have a 10-15 minute walk to and from).
Power of Fear
I made a Krampus mask for a Winter Solstice party this past year and while I was thinking about this month’s theme challenge I decided to try my hand at drawing it (something I’ve been meaning to do for a while now, anyway).
Power of Addiction
I smoked socially for a few years and, even though I’ve kicked the habit, I still find myself jonesing for that first hit every once in a while. A few of my mates smoke like fiends and while we were out at the pub over the weekend I ended up grabbing the front of one the packages with the idea of making some art out of it and this is the result.
