Illustration Friday: Launch


Remember making boats from typing paper or the newspaper and launching them in a stream? That's what came to mind when I saw today's prompt. I used my printer to copy a surface design of mine and then had to look online for instructions on how to fold the little boat. On my third try, I finally kind of got the hang of it and that was a good thing since my printer is running low on ink.

It's been so long since I folded little boats and launched them in the bathtub or in puddles of water. This charming little boat brings back memories...

Brilliant!

By the way, I also know how to make a paper boat. My father taught me when I was a kid.
