Productivity at Peak

Jeannette Langmead Illustration Sketchblog

So the other day I was walking around in the town forest and I found a spot to stack some rocks. Stacking rocks is one of my top three favorite things to do. I feel like I made quite an impressive tower and I wanted to remember it. I didnt bring my digital camera and my cell phone isnt high tech enough to take pictures, so I sat for a while and sketched it out. Sketching is also one of my top three favorite things to do. The tower is probably a little taller than me, and Im pretty short.

This is my 30th IF.

This is a great drawing Jeannette. In Scotland they are called 'cairns' (maybe everyhwere else too for all I know) and they are sometimes really old as everyone just adds one stone at a time. But I love the character of your sketch, clearly you need to get out more - in a good way.

Now that is an impressive stack!
What wonderful balance them stones have. A nice drawing that makes me want to go for a walk in the hills.

Cool. In Canada, it's a form of Inuit art called Inuksuit. Check out this link.
