Illustration Friday: String

A third grade science experiment involving string theory.


For some reason "String theory" was the first thing that came to mind when I read the topic. But not really understanding what string theory is, I had no concrete visual for it. Then I thought what would a kid think string theory was? A theory about what happens when your sister trips over string of course.


I think the composition is working, but I'm not all that happy with the color. (But didn't want to do it again...)

Someone is going to be in trouble! This is a fun idea for the theme.

I also really wanted to do something about "String Theory," but I could not think of a good idea to draw for it. So mind digressed. I really like your idea for it. It is drawn nice too.

Oh my! That's going to hurt. I can just picture the ruckus that ensues. Such a great picture. It tells the story perfectly!

Good idea!...I love to peep in for a glimpse of the graceful dancer.
He must be either her admirer or simply fooling around...

OOh I love it and I have to say, " I think you are wrong about the color! From the moment I looked at it I loved it! I love the color!!!!! Very retro feel to it. I agree with Roberta that someone is going to be in trouble, but it's just fantastic. I really, really like the looseness as well. Great work!!!!!
