To be honest, when the Illustration Friday prompt came this morning I wasn't exactly running for my brushes filled with inspired bliss. "Equipment" brought images of tractors, backhoes and other heavy machinery...technical, mechanical kind of stuff that didn't speak to me. However, I was determined to participate. So I looked "equipment" up in the dictionary rather than settle for my preconceived, stifling notions. Definition #2 felt more comfortable:
2, that which equips; supplies; gear.
After finding a way to relate, I illustrated my type of equipment as seen above.
That's what I love about Illustration Friday. A common word is able to produce a wide range of inspiration and images.
And yes, if you're wondering, I do think heavy construction equipment would be happier with more color and of course glitter. Just my thoughts.
