Thanks goodness it's Illustration Friday, eh? This week's illustration prompt is "fearless", and naturally, my mind turned to my own fears.

This blog is no stranger to the fact that I am irrationally afraid of heights. Forget roller coasters, I don't even like friendly Ferris wheels! Heck, lifeguard chairs have been known to strike fear!


So, I drew a bungee jumper - the antithesis of me - just moments after "lift-off".

I wish I had the guts to do this.

Not really.

Oooo, love the perspective on this, great illo - I'm a fellow colored pencil afficianado too.

Great job! No way I could do this either...

Have a great weekend and Mother's Day!

This picture makes me ill--I can FEEL the vertigo of it. Fabulous perspective, and fabulous colors.

I got chills just looking at that picture. I don't "do" heights either and I wouldn't be caught dead bungee jumping.

Great pic- do you have any idea how hard it is to actually find a place that does bungee jumping, once you decide to do it? I haven't had any luck!

Beautiful, superb detail! I can so easily be that jumper, in my mind!
