Illustration Friday - Match

for whatever reason, when i got this week's theme for IF, i immediately thought of the impromptu game of pick up sticks we had while camping a gazillion years ago. bored out of our skulls, pick up sticks using matches seemed a great solution! i was also reminded of the card matching game my kids play quite a bit. i wanted to add color to this, but burnt the s**t out of my finger whilst changing a lightbulb and can't hold a crayon. maybe later. have a great week!

I like the way you've used the blocks as separate frames. It's a nice drawing. Sorry about your finger.

The perspective is cool. It could be raining matches and we cant go out and play until the fire goes out. Or this could be the bottom side of the game board.
Nice!

Later

how fun! the combination of pick up sticks and memory. sorry about your finger, those light bulbs get hot ;0). My Grandparents had the game of pick up sticks that were made out of plastic and were all shaped like tools.

nice lookin comp here not sure if it would look any better in color or not probably more of a different feel to it.

Clever way to individualize an otherwise obvious topic choice! Great job!
