Illustration Friday: Flight

I wasn't sure if I was going to have the energy to make an illustration for this week's I-fri topic, flight. But today I'm feeling a wee bit better and did one, even if a little late. The word 'flight' brought to mind a memory from when I was little. My brother and I were fishing on the Gulf of Mexico when a flying fish suddenly jumped out of the water and flew by. My brother cast his line at that same moment and snagged it mid-air. He reeled it in and we got a closer look at it before we threw it back.

I remember thinking about how that fish must feel. Being able to swim and fly. I bet he swam around like he was king, bragging and sparkling.
