Nothing if not Versatile

It was too hot today in Santa Clarita to do anything except evaporate. It was too hot even, to draw. So what did I do?  I defied the heat and did draw anyway.

For this scene at the mall, when I started to draw, I was in the shade. However, since it was near noon, the angles changed quickly and I was soon engulfed in the firey maw of the day. Scrambling feverishly with pens and markers I hastened to finish. Dermal trauma notwithstanding, I'm happy with the result.

As if that weren't artistic accomplishment enough, I also got to use the phrase "engulfed in the firey maw of the day" in a sentence. I've been meaning to do that for a while. Like has been said, I'm nothing if not versatile.
