Illustration Friday: Wired

     I actually have a funny story behind this week's theme. In high school I went on one of those "see all of Europe in two weeks" tours.
     We had a great time, but I remember as we stood under the Eiffel Tower (and me a complete francophile - wow), a girl named Amy sat there plugged into her music with her eyes closed. I wanted to shake her and say, "Look up will ya?"
     So as I was sketching something for this week's theme, of course Amy came to mind. But instead of the Eiffel Tower I wondered, what if whatever was above her was something even more amazing? Something like a big pink dragon?
     This is a serious quickie - just a few hours.

i can tell its a quickie cause it doens't have ur great detailing in it. and if this tooks a few hours makes me wonder how long the ones that amaze me take. still for a quickie very nice. im working very slow on being able to do something even 1/2 as good as this. hopefully in time and alot of practice ill ge there.

This is just great! If I were standing next to this little girl, I would be so excited I would be jumping up and down while I shouted, "look up ...will ya!" Dragon's are just plain awesome.

That is my middle daughter to a t..always flitting about and not paying a lick of attention to what is going on...but she usually ends up tripping over something and gets snapped back to reality for a second or two...

Priceless expression!
Funny that the kids are running away since the dragon looks so cuddly..
