Peekaboo!


Scribble Picnic's Fill-in-the-Blank challenge is upon us. Here's my entry, using that dot and line as a starter and working out from there. A stately yet quirky drawing room seemed like a nice contrast to the unexpected. :)

I certainly didn't expect to end up with some tongue-in-cheek, pseudo Gary Larson's Far Side* type image, but after placing that dot and line on the page, this is just what came to me. All I knew was that I wanted some element of surprise whilst telling some kind of story.

It's surprising how we approach the same problem, isn't it? Can't wait to see what the rest of you decided on!

    1. I always love it when I can interpret something into a story as then the image has more of a lasting affect, right? Thank you.

  5. This is entirely creative and fun Michael.
    I not only like the little boy seeing what is outside, but the art on the wall and lamp are fun details.

  7. What I like most is what is alive is coloured. All man-made things are black and white. Beautiful illustration and I would like to read the story - or the tagline.
    Who's watching you?

  8. I like the portraits on the wall, very cute. I think having almost everything white is a good idea, it makes a little abstract. wonderful imagination you have here.

    have a lovely day.

  9. Oops! Left my comment on your other post - anyway love your entry Michael, is that you as a little boy?

    I almost skipped this one as I was so frustrated trying to find something - but didn't want to give up and even had Bob helping me try to find something. He suggested "just do a stick figure" and I took it from there!

    Happy day - Mary

    1. Haha, could be! Well, now you've really got my curiosity, Mary, will have to check it out. Thanks for the rummaging around the first place. And, yes, Bob is so right--I thought this challenge was perfect for stick figures or such! :)

    1. Something like that, yes. Definitely turning the table on the bug collector examiner who must live there. :)

  11. I really like the color added to focus on the eye and the boy.

  12. Who would have ever thought all that could come from a simple circle and line? I may have to be a bit cautious the next time I sit on our window seat! Glad to see the window is latched! I see so many details-eyelashes, fringe on the window blind, pull chain on the lamp. What is along the baseboard on both sides?

  14. A little playful, a little scary, and really well done! I can't help feeling a little worried for the little boy - there's a bit of the "outer limits" going on here. Who's keeping who in the zoo kind of.

  15. This is wonderful, Mooks. This is a SUPER fun idea and take on your theme. SO cute! I love the monster peeking in and the little boy totally surprised. I also LOVE the framed bugs. :D
