Illustration Friday - Balloon

{Pencil Colored In Photoshop}

My entry this week is pretty straightforward...but when I was a kid, there was NOTHING better than a balloon. I would keep them until they were shriveled. I think I loved them because of their imaginative possibilities; they were a mode of flying and seemed to have a life of their own...even after the helium had left. I drew faces on my balloons, tied them to things, and always had to have them present at my birthday celebrations!
