Illustration Friday: Launch

Illustration Friday: 'Launch',
taking a brave step into the unkown.



'Yet each man kills the thing he loves,
By each let this be heard,
Some do it with a bitter look,
Some with a flattering word,
The coward does it with a kiss,
The brave man with a sword.’
 
- Oscar Wilde.

Beautiful illustration and I love the words too, they're from one of my favorite books 'Reading Goal'.

how wonderful it is to sometimes take a big leap and launch ourselves into the unknow - and then get a suprise when we realise that we can fly. lovely art work.
