Illustration Friday - Save


"And then I saved my Mother by stomping the poor earthworm into oblivion." I must have been around two years old or so. I don't remember the incident, but I've heard my Mother tell it more than once, so it must have been something special--my first heroic moment.

My illustration for this week's Illustration Friday challenge, on the theme of "Save." As usual, a pencil sketch, finished in Photoshop.

Great illo too. Like the style.

Aw! Cute little two-year-old Christopher! You were pretty savage, though.

I love your 2-year-old perception of your mom as being so scared that she is drawing back from the 'nake...with even her hair retreating! And you are her fierce knight-in-shining-armour. I think it's great!
