So I have this thing for frogs. LOVE 'EM. Always have, always will.
Even in my Things I Like book from first grade, I'm carrying a mint chocolate chip ice cream cone and a drawing of a frog.
I remember in high school Spanish class, my teacher remarked upon the frog prince cartoons I drew on EVERYTHING.
"Quién es su rana principe?" she asked (or whatever the Spanish for "Who is your frog prince?" is - I got a C in Spanish, and that was about 12 years ago, so I'm just making stuff up here).
To which I replied, "Um...."
To which she replied, "Is it Micah?" and pointed to the hot guy who sat in front of me.
Now, for the record, I didn't have a thing for the hot guy in front of me, but his face turned bright red and she thought that was fantastic, and proceeded to call him my Rana Principe for the rest of the school year, which we both just LOVED if you can imagine.
And that was when I stopped drawing frog princes on my homework...
But those frog princes - I continued drawing them.
FROGS in LOVE!
Spanish frogs, to be exact. I started the story of Hector and Consuelo when I was in high school Spanish (no joke), and now I'm working on bringing it to life.
So. I hope you all like frogs, too, because you will most certainly see some more frog illustrations as I put my dummy together and share bits and pieces of it.
Happy Friday, to all of you! And for those of you who read these flashbacks and think, "HEY! I like flashing back to my past, too!"
