IF: Play


So I decided that for this weeks Illustration Friday theme of Play I would show a piece of hope. I feel like this poor adorable boy, Chris2, is probably going nuts in his head thinking how he would love to stop sitting still for the camera and bolt out the door to have some fun with his mates! Don't you just want to splash him with some mud! The background is comprised of lots of fun bits and pieces like an old playing card, a vintage Old Mother Hubbard illustration and poem, and the title page from a book called "The Tale of the Frisky Squirrel".

Come on Chris!! Give us a wink!
