Illustration Friday - "Safari"

  1. Hello Elizabeth:
    Oh, how we have laughed at this illustration! For us, it is more a reflection of human nature [especially of tourists] than anything else. So busy looking through binoculars [or, our pet hate, taking photographs] to notice what is right under their noses. Except, of course, the small child who misses nothing. This is a perfect tableau of the 'human condition'.

    And, we love the giraffes too!!

  9. Very funny and true: kids always tell you they have seen the most incredible things; proud parents too often don't believe them!
    Hurray for kids!

  12. Lol that first comment is so true, and you captured that perfectly... I love the little details in this, like the way that the van is tilted, and then the little boy balances it out.

  14. Love it! The bright colors of the little boy's hat draws attention to him. I love the way the adults are oblivious to what is going on behind them.
