New one for SooJin Buzelli at Planadviser magazine, based on the concept of “The importance of the right training/knowledge is power.” A pretty tricky phrase to illustrate, particularly since I needed to encapsulate both of those slightly different ideas. I like all the other sketches, but this is the only one that clicks with the concept. A nice thing with SooJin’s assignments is that I often get neat sketches that I can reuse later one for personal stuff.

becoming a parent means being the one to get the wasp out of the room and idk if i’m prepared to do that
Strategies I have used to try to avoid getting the wasp out of the room:
"Shouldn’t we let nature take its course? The wasp will eventually die."
"Mom will be home in three hours; perhaps the wasp-removal process can wait until then."
"Let’s open the window and see if the wasp will fly out."
"Perhaps there is a wasp removal service that will get the wasp out of the room for a small fee. Let me look on google."
"You’re four now. You’re a big kid. Maybe you want to attempt to get the wasp out of the room."
"Maybe we should just leave the house and go to the playground and hope that the wasp has magically disappeared by the time we return."
"Alternately, we could just sell this house and find a different, waspless one."
