IF - plain

Plain fun with plain old paper.

My entry for IF this week. Remember making newspaper hats and paper airplanes? Oh, so much fun can be had with paper. I still love paper and have great fun making stuff with it. Must have been all that early crafting I did as a kid. Do kids even do stuff like that anymore? I hope in this digital world kids don't lose out on the simple fun of creating things like paper hats.

oh! This is great. Love his eyes and the background. I always loved making paper airplanes even if they did't fly very far!

Lovely illustration. And yes--we make paper hats for our little boy, he loves wearing them almost as much as he loves pulling them to pieces!

I like your take on the subject, and as always your illustration is top notch. Did you do your original drawing on an invoice? I like that paper texture.
