Did you ever create something that just got out of hand? No matter what you did, it never seemed finished, it never seemed quite right, and everybody gave you the benefit of their opinion.
This is an illustration for a great story named "Dad's Sculpture" by my friends, authors Julie Hunt and Sue Moss. The family and neighbours just don't know what they're in for when Dad goes to a welding class and begins work on his piece-de-resistance. And Dad certainly doesn't realise that his creation is about to take over his life ...
While doodling for this illustration, I also accidentally drew this giant metal teddybear. A disturbing emergence from the subconscious. Some things were never meant to be big!
