Illustration Friday - Idle




This was a bit of an experiment for me today. I decided to do a bit of mixed media and collage. I bought some textured paper and gave it a go!


The image that came into my head when I thought of 'Idle' was of this little old tortoise. In his early years he was a bit of a goer racing around from one thing to another but as time ticked on he became a bit idle. But that's not a bad thing he now gets to read the classics in his comfy chair!

: ) Wow! I just posted mine and am now seeing your piece. This is fun and great that you tried something new! I have a little tortoise in my piece this week, too. Your tortoise is super cute, and glad that yours is resting and enjoying his senior days reading!
