Illustration Friday: Renewal


.........................................................
By way of an explanation, nothing says renewal to me like a phoenix being reborn in the raging inferno of the biggest cup of coffee you've ever seen.

As an aside, I've been hitting the decaf for a while now, and that fills me with great joie de vivre even in the absence of the typical psychoactive stimulant.

As a further aside, the city seal of my town (Portland, Maine) sports a phoenix and the motto "Resurgam," Latin for "I will rise again." That on account of being burned down four times, I kid you not.
