Illustration Friday - Play


it's playtime and since i was having so much fun last week, i decided to stick with the series… so, it isn't as much fun as catching rain with a butterfly net but you haven't seen where he plans to set sail…

and sailing is probably the best idea for travel these days anyway… what with the gas prices the way they are and flying is a bit scary right now… gas-guzzling SUVs, manned by crazed, gun-toting fools with cell phone permanently attached to their heads kind of makes driving anywhere some kind of loopy… so… time to set sail…

night all…

Nice job! I used to have a little wooden boat, half that size and I used to love to play with it in the water.. he looks so excited!

Ha ha--I totally agree man. Anyhow, i really like the wide-eyed innocence in this boy's eyes. It reminds me of a time before video games were so prominent and your imagination was the fuel for a good session of playing outdoors.

Sailing does sound pretty nice right now. The weather has been such an improvement since the heatwave and just enough wind. This is a fun continuation of style ~ you do have many. What talent!

This kid has more fun than ten others put together, and i'd like to know where is he going to sail his little boat. I love looking at this -expressive, energized artwork!

This boy are looking forward to sail with his boat - very happy image.

I see, it's quite a nice idea to sail - away from troubles and paperwork.
