See, I'm a Libra, so when I saw this week's Illustration Friday theme was the word, "scale" I immediately thought I'd like to draw some sort of variation on my Zodiac symbol. And since I love cupcakes, it all seemed to make logical sense to me. I considered many other ideas though...and it was hard for me to figure out which direction I wanted to take with this...did I want to draw something relating to weight, to size or judgement? All things that might have made this a much stronger illustration. And then, after I decided to just get started on this... I thought...what should be on these plates??? Should she be weighing her options...cupcakes versus fruit? Or are her "balanced" and equal plated cupcakes okay? And now, it occurs to me (finally!) that this is fine the way it is. Just let it go! See, as a Libra, I might be "balanced" and fair-minded but, dagnabbit, it's hell to make a simple decision sometimes! So, fine...here, have a cupcake Libra girl!!
