This is my first time participating in Illustration Friday, a website that challenges illustrators of all genres and disciplines to interpret a weekly topic, which is assigned each Friday. This week's topic is "Gravity." Although my peice is titled "Flight", the main character is a young pig who has come up with a way to defy the gravitational limitations directly responsible for the birth of the humiliating phrase,"Yeah, and pigs may fly." You may be thinking,"Ah, but the Law of Gravity clearly states that what goes up must come down, thus his defiance shall be short-lived." But you see, the piglet has already thought this part through, and used clock parts for his invention. "Time flies when you're having fun," and as long as the piglet enjoys himself, he may never have to land again.
On a note similar to flying objects, I've finished another Venetian Masked Bird. This was my virgin attempt at lino-cutting, and I have to say that I'm hooked. Not too many things can claim to be intensely challenging and thoroughly relaxing at the same time!
