A History of Picasso's Mother's Day Card

This is probably of interest to no one save me, but then that defines a blog, right? I took this screen capture right after I finished converting yesterday's art from the Photoshop drawing I made to vectors in Illustrator. At this point in the process, I had put in a gradient background (so that I could see all of the components better) and knocked out all of the individual backgrounds that result when converting a drawing to vectors. Each of the different colors represents a separate layer. By the time I was finished, the number of layers had more than doubled.

Sometimes what happens during the process of creation is at least as interesting as what happens at the end of the process. This was one of those times.
