This watercolor is yet another Illustration Friday illustration. The word of the week is, “grounded”. This disappointed World War One pilot is going nowhere. I contemplated using French Great War uniforms because they are made of a lovely shade of horizon blue cloth. However, I wanted a sign in English and that did not make much sense if they were soldiers in the French army. These are important things to consider when you are making a quick watercolor illustration.

    This is great! I love watercolor style and the great expressions on the characters faces. Only one panel yet the feel and emotions of the joke are totally conveyed. Great job!

    Like the picture. It captures the historic antipathy between the air and ground services. Army joke: “What is the first thing the Airforce builds when they get in-country? A golf course.” Looks like the RAF should have put up a tent instead. Or maybe the pilot’s in Time-out, that new type of punishment the military will probably adopt when our gutless civy culture inevitably pollutes the service.

    You consistently produce such clever interpretations of the IF topics. Kudos!

  7. Great expression on the pilots face. Love his red scarf too.

    I’ll contact the WordPress help people and see if they can figure it out. If there is a link to “Poll Daddy” with this comment just ignore it.
