Illustration Friday {SkyLine}




I'm not sure where this image originated in my mind. I suppose it is my own version of Peter Pan...with children emerging from chimneys and floating fish whisking them off on some dream journey.

For some reason flying fish are starting to pop up everywhere in my work - I wonder what that could mean?

The blue colors make a special atmosphere, the flying fish too - maybee you think at the ocean? It'a like a fairytale - with a morale?

Has a little Harry Potter flavor too. I like it.

What kind of fish would it be if it were big enough to hoist pesky kids onto its back? More like a whale probably...some phyceter or grand venture. I think the kid sitting on the chimney, leaning back on his wobbly arms, looks like Ken.

Ah, such a nice way of using the colors and the water. I love the atmosphere, I wanna be there. Peaking out of a roof window and watching the fishes swim by. :D The sky and the moon looks so great. Nice work.
