Illustration friday _ Launch

Geoffrey the gerbil loves fun and he cant wait to launch into a bit more! The thing is, you get to decide what he is going to launch into, a wonderfully crisp pile of autumn leaves leaves, a mountain of fairy floss ( cotton candy) he wants to eat his way through or a big slimy squelchy mud puddle.
My little girl helped me with the options for his launch, I wont tell you her favorite until later :-)

  4. oh how cute! I wouldn't be able to decide which pile I would want to jump in first all I know is that I would be sure to jump into all of them at some stage!! :)

  5. Well, for me it would be the autumn leaves. When we were kids we would make a huge pile of leaves from raking the yard and then lay a large tarp over it and have wrestling matches on it. Lots of flying in from 'ringside' onto your opponent. PLus the tarp would keep the leaves from re-scattering so no clean up after play. Ha!

  7. Terrific character. He makes me smile. Love the selection of options your little girl gave him to launch himself into. I personally hope he goes for the mud puddle. :)

  8. If it's not too late, can I vote for all three? Maybe not all at once, but on three separate launches? :o)

  10. He's cute. Looks like the cotton candy might be the drop-point, but I'd say a thimp int cottomn candy with an ongoing slide into the mud.. all the momentum from the launch. :)

  11. Thank you so much everyone, whew, the end of a very busy week with not much reprieve on the weekend... sometimes there just are not enough hours in the day! I've I have seriously been missing my art time but managed to fit in a bit yesterday and have this afternoon (slotted into breaks in cooking dinner) been working with Geoffrey to let you all know what it is he managed to jump into. Because I never want anyone to leave disappointed, you will see I have given you the option to pick your favourite to see how he ended up… :-) Just click on the link on the next post (let me know if it doesn’t work – its something new I’m trying)
    Angelina’s favourite was the cotton candy! I think she was wishing she could be playing with Geoffrey at that very moment.
