This week’s theme for Illustration Friday is “Prehistoric”. I decided NOT to illustrate any dinosaurs, since I’ve done quite a few of them in my day. Instead, I made some Canada geese dressed up as dinosaurs.
What, you’ve never noticed how much geese look like dinosaurs? I used to stare out the window in high school at the geese grazing on the soccer field and pretend that they were little hungry dinos. (I guess that’s why I don’t remember very much European history!) Anyway, that’s what inspired this creation. It’s a tribute to my sixteen-year-old self, and a shoutout to Canada Geese, which are, after all, descendants of dinosaurs.
Also, since we’re having our millionth snow day of the year today, I decided to winterize my picture by illustrating the geese on a frozen lake. Hence the ice fishing cabins! Doesn’t it look cold?
