Holding court

children's illustration of a princess

“You there, underling! Fetch me something to drink. At once.”

When a little boy puts on a knight’s costume, he becomes a knight. Those dragons really happen and the day needs saving. The earth’s future depends on it! It’s serious business.

One of my favourite games was dressing up too. When I slipped into that pink, sparkly dress and put on the plastic tiara, the gates to the kingdom far, far away really did open. They needed me to be queen! And I ruled them hard, really hard.

Today’s India ink and watercolour illustration has been done for Illustration Friday and the topic is… imagination!
