IF. Climbing

In just over a fortnight Linsey takes off on her trip to Canada!

She is very excited and just a little nervous (I’m just jealous). It’s no secret, she‘s not the best flyer so a trip across the Atlantic without my hand to hold/crush is a real test. The hardest part will be climbing on the big bird and waiting to get in the air but after a couple of glasses of something red I’m sure she’ll be fine. So if anybody in Montreal spots a group of chilly looking teachers from England out and about from the 14th of Feb say Hello.

Awesome. Just the simple placement of that shadow creates so much depth. Great job!

I like the idea of riding the Canadian goose. :-)

Of course i will look to the sky! And because normally these goose come back here and fly over our heads in montreal around the end of april, then if i see one flying on middle february i will be sure it is the goose with your Linsey and friends on. I will wave hands to them! And if your Linsey wants to call me for anything or just make a little tour in the city it will be a pleasure for me! : )
My e-mail is magauthier@ca.inter.net
and i can give her my phone number also and she can call me if she like to, ok?
And also your illo is great and magic, i love it, and it is an enchantment for me to see and hear these goose when they arrive. : )

I Love this illo. The concept, layout, colors, the bird, the girl and the white shapes underneath the bird. Belows in a Children's book. Ncce work.

Excellent! That would be a magical way to fly, wouldn't it? In-flight meals are terrible anyway. I'm not a very good flyer either. I hope she has a good trip.
