Lost Key


..and I got a bit lost in this drawing - got a bit more involved than I originally planned. That's the theme over at Illustration Friday this week - "LOST". The key, by the way, is a Chubb! treasure trail

Thanks for your kind appreciation, Lisa, Pajara Pinta and Ellen - really glad you enjoyed it.

Looking at the picture again, I'm wishing freshwater fish could talk, then maybe he'd get his key back. Otherwise there's no way..

This is really wonderful! There's so much to see I could just sit here for a while and look. In fact, I think I will.

But I found the key. *G*

I enjoyed this one as well. What with the mushrooms and the cannabis looking plant I thought the chap might be lost in a druggy haze, looking for the key to his consciousness, which of course is a fish.

If only one could be surreal without resorting to them...

Hello Aravis, hope you enjoyed looking. But you can't have the key, I need that for the front door..

Thanks Dave, I enjoyed your reading of it. Yes that does look rather like marijuana growing there, but there's a lot of weird growth that's more expressive than figurative - sort of anxiety plants. Hmm - I don't resort to fish, Mr I-know-johnnynorms'-lyrics, but I certainly don't rule them out!
