Oh yeah, this brings back some memories of how I used to use cardboard boxes to make space ships as a kid! All you needed was a cardboard box, crayons and some imagination. Great depiction Enigma!

This is so cute, we use to make forts from boxes.

There's nothing better than playing with cardboard! I love the texture in your illustration.

When my boys were younger I would create fun things to go with their birthday parties out of cardboard. From pirates, wild animals to space ships! I've always imagined making a grandfather clock out of cardboard. Maybe some day.

Linda said...

the textures here are beautiful. we use to pile in a cardboard box and roll down the hill, looking back that could have been dangerous, but it was loads of fun, for free!

Oh, that is the essence of childhood. I remember doing the same, and my kids fight to be the first to get dibs on every box that comes in the house!!

I like this picture because it makes me remember my child's memories. It is a very warm and strong piece of art. Very cool. Very successfully shared the artist's experience with the viewers.
