fairytale friday installment #5: little boy blue

Here is installment #5 of my ongoing series for FFWD Weekly, it's little boy blue. More of a Nursery Rhyme than a Fairy Tale perhaps, but I read the comic book Fables a couple years ago and Boy Blue was one of my favorite characters. It made me interested in what other things these fictional characters may get up to when the whole world wasn't reciting the story that has entered the general consciousness. When creating this piece I was thinking about what Little Boy Blue might be dreaming of while asleep on the job, so it has taken abit more of a surreal twist than the narrative of the nursery rhyme we are all used to hearing.

I also always like drawing music related subject matter, so this was a good excuse to do just that. Next week may be music related as well...

This one was a bit simpiler than past weeks (you can see them all here; just scroll through), so the process was pretty quick. Here are some process shots.

Here is your post related song of the day!
