Illustration Friday - "gravity!"

© kathleen rietz
Mmmmm....a glass of red wine, a fountain pen, some Pantone markers and Illustration Friday...what a blissful combo!

I just could not help but picture these young pranksters and their water-filled balloons when I read the theme for Illustration Friday -- "gravity". A quick sketch is all I have time for. I am working on a new project this weekend.

  8. Excellent Kathleen! I'd say that red wine was working for you :) I love the way you captured the "stretchy-ness" of the falling balloon. I wonder who the target is?
