TGI Illustration Friday! This week's prompt is "giant".
I remember once when I was a little kid. A friend and I were in my backyard smashing ants with plastic croquet mallets. At one point, my friend - a boy - commented, "His family is probably going to miss him tonight", referring to the recently murdered ant. And yet, the carnage continued.
I, however, stopped and pondered that idea. Did ants have families? Was I killing Mom? Dad? Uncle Joe? I never felt right about smashing ants after that.
In hopes that the Karma doesn't catch up to me, I dedicate this week's Illustration Friday submission to the powerful ant. A true giant among bugs.
And.... uh.... sorry about Uncle Joe.
