Illustration Friday Captain


"All I need is a tall tall ship
And a star to steer her by."

Took the little boy from "The Waterboy" and gave him a ship on a sandy beach. The hardest part was painting and weathering the boat... I used my Mister Retro filters to make the wood look old.

Hard to believe that a week ago, Mama Goat was still alive. I looked at the pictures yesterday when I took pictures of the girls for the first day of school. Horrible.

I always love your collages! The colors are so charming and brilliant! Great story without knowing a story... I think its called narrative.
