Carrot on a stick

Maybe you know this feeling: you are working on a project that’s almost finished. You have already invested a lot of time and energy into it and now you’ve almost reached the finish line. You focus, looking forward to the satisfying sensation of finishing a task. And at the last moment your boss or client is calling – they had just thought of one or two more details that need to be done as well.

Anyone who has experienced this situation before might have felt similar to the donkey in this illustration chasing the proverbial carrot on a stick. Having your goal right in front of you, seemingly about to reach it – and yet not getting closer.

This is one of the first illustratoins that I drew on my iPad Pro. One of the goals was to become more familiar with the tools provided. It is impressive how realistic the brushes in software like SketchBook can look by now.
