Illustration Friday: Faded

Illustration of faded photograph and memories
© 2012 Sylvia Liu
The photo and memories are faded, but certain things from my childhood are indelibly printed on my mind. One of them is the needlepoint of two cute girls that my mom made, that is hanging on the wall in this photo. I love everything about this photo: the early 70s vibe, my dad's Star Trek-like outfit, the psychedelic shirts my sister and I are wearing that complement our crazy couch (that's me blending into the couch), and the pre-Caracas memories of living in Chicago this stirs up.
