When I saw Pigeon Master’s drawing for Illustration Friday, it reminded me of this photo I took in Mexico a couple of years ago. We were standing on a bridge looking over a beach where the river met the ocean and looked down to see a young girl, all alone and still wearing her school uniform.

She was drawing in the sand with a stick, and she covered the beach with houses, bugs, cars and people. I was surprised that she could draw so well on such a big scale, and at the same time strangely inspired by the thought of the beach as a huge blank canvas washed clean each day by the ocean.
