ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY ~ BACKWARDS


As she looked BACKWARDS over her shoulder Paulette saw the stunned and surprised looks on her parents' faces. As she fell further and further into the foaming sea, she hollered BACKWARDS over the waves, " Don't worry! I'm sure I'll wash up somewhere!"

Finding no comfort in her words, her bereft parents furiously untangled their fishing nets and cast them into the sea in a desperate effort to snare their fast disappearing daughter. Alas, they unfurled them BACKWARDS, and Paulette disappeared beneath the waves.

However, she did wash up on shore, kiddies, and can be found (quite well and happy and also very very clean!) in another Illustration Friday theme...to be announced.

So did the sea creatures help or hinder Paulette's aquatic adventure? I love it, great job.

Great illo, Ginger, such great movement all around. A bit scary too, isnt it? I can't wait to see what happens next. :-)
