The joy of having boys is seeing the contraptions they create. It never takes long to turn cardboard boxes into pirate ships, bean bags into dinosaurs or a simple Lazy-Boy Recliner into a giant submarine. In no time a new world is created and a new memory made.
It seemed only right to try to capture that magic while illustrating for this week’s word, “contraption”. I had great fun imagining what it would look like if one of their contraptions actually worked. Can you imagine the look on their face when their makeshift helicopter actually lifted or took flight? I had many chuckles at my studio table picturing each of my boys in this scenario… What great fun!
