Drawing for a Painting

Finished some storyboard revisions this week, and I haven’t had much of a chance to post until now.  This is a drawing for a small painting I’m going to do.

I’ve been reading boy and dog stories lately, Henry Huggins, Henry and Ribsy, by Beverly Cleary, and Ginger Pye by Eleanor Estes.  I like the innocence of the Youth Fiction of the 50s and 60s.  I also like that the stories are super interesting and that the kids are responsible and outward focused.  Don’t get me wrong, I like the glorification of pagan-angsty-selfish-outcast-teenagers as much as the next guy, provided the next guy doesn’t like them at all.  Anyway, that’s neither here nor there.  I wanted this composition to be sort of poster-like, so I based it off the telescoping circle thing found in art nouveau jewelry.

This thing:

Not too subtle I know.  The red circles are completely unnecessary because it’s so obvious.

I hope to paint it up in the next week or so.  Keep you posted.
