Free Fall Friday – April

Brian Bowes sent in this illustration, titled “Dreaming On Paper” for April’s call for illustrations. The image it’s self is of the April Fool and her dog, letting go of her work onto the winds of the world, and what comes back to her is her muse. There’s no official story that goes with this image, only the story that we bring to it. (watercolor 10.25×15.5″).

Brain loves creating images of wonder and adventure. He loves the whole process. He believes that beautiful images, and well told stories can help to remind us of the magic in our own lives. His work consists of fantastical watercolors, created with care and attention. His affection for the wondrously fantastical, may stem from my early exposure to the likes of Ray Bradbury. You can visit Brian at:
