Illustration Friday - "Wide"


My first 'true' IF* entry for a lil' while.
And a wee experiment in colour combinations

This week's theme, "Wide" put me in mind of the great Divine Comedy song, 'National Express'.
A brilliant toon, inspired lyrics.

On the national express theres a jolly hostess
Selling crisps and tea
Shell provide you with drinks and theatrical winks
For a sky-high fee
Mini-skirts were in style when she danced down the aisle
Back in 63 (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
But its hard to get by when your arse is the size
Of a small country
