Illustration Friday - Emergency




I just read the picture book "The Incredible Book Eating Boy" by Oliver Jeffers and I loved it. My 6-year-old son loved it too. Which is a big endorsement considering there were no monster trucks or tractors in it. I loved the collage illustrations and it inspired me to try my hand at a collage-y type thing. I guess it's because I'm a mom, but this was the first thing that pops into my head when I hear emergency.

This is hilarious! I love it...funny how hearing water like the waterfall always makes it worse! Cute with the RR signs in the background. You did a great job with your collage!

very funny and I like the idea with the collage, too. And I think it was brilliant to use the photo of a waterfall.
