A gentleman commissioned me to draw a likeness of his child having an adventure with her favorite toys done in my sketch style. It went over well and lead to a couple similar requests. Making these was a lot of fun because that was me as a kid...making up worlds and elaborate scenarios with my toys. To this day, the first thing I think when I see someones backyard for the first time is "would this be a cool place to play with GI Joes?" Funny thing is, the nicer the yard the more dull it is...er...was to play in. Give me a thicket of untrimmed trees and some washed out soil. Hills and rocks wanted. I think I may be justifying the poor condition of my back yard actually. It's a GI Joe paradise. Or GI Joe armageddon, depending on the play scenario. Hell, my father in law has tons of abandoned farm equipment on his property and I always think it would have been heaven to play in as a kid. Yes. A giant bee infested, tetanus riddled heaven. I've always been a bit jealous of the way farmers don't take their stuff to a salvage yard. They put it "over there" and call it good. Okay I'm wandering off topic. Anyways these were fun.
