Match I,II,III and IV

Match- Illustration Friday
OK...this word really got my creativity flowing for some reason. I couldn't help myself! This first piece done in Micron pen and coloured pencil is my tribute to Anthropologists, archeologists and paleontologists. It always seemed like a neat job to recreate history by matching tiny fragments and pieces. This bowl is a modern piece by a Navajo Indian by the name of Wesley Begay. His work is available at

Tennis match anyone?
Remember paper dolls? Here is a boy version! Matching clothes was fun wasn't it?!

OK....this just came out...nothing I could do to stop it.
