Illustration Friday - Expired

Expired  watercolor and ink

I immediately thought about my husband who traveled  Internationally. On one trip, he arrived in Helsinki Finland and the customs agent asks, "What is this Expired mean?”  This was his third stop on the trip. He had recently just gotten a new passport, but grabbed the expired one. When your Passport is expired they punch the word expired at the top when sending it back to you. So here's my offering for Expired.

Its a Reptile world

"Its a Reptile Word"  Color pencil - the scan really dulled the colors

I had a little fun with reptiles. I have always loved the Geico Gecko, and when he posed with glasses, I had to draw him. I did this for my son for his 23rd birthday - Yikes! It will fit in nicely with all the other eclectic art on the walls in his apartment.
