The Balloon Seller

(HB pencil on 125mm x 75mm note paper)
Don't expect this old balloon seller to be made into a Royal Doulton figure anytime soon!

Nobody knows her name, but she does have her own unique way with children. If they misbehave, she'll start by taking away their pets - one by one. If they still persist in being unruly, then she'll take away their parents - one by one. Sooner or later they learn manners and morals. If they don't, and they grow up into misbehaving adults, then she punishes them by cutting off their hands - one by one.
But mostly, she sells balloons.

It was a nice photo that you did and it reminded me of the image that I did. Abandoned drinks cans tend to be so common that most people don't notice them anymore(which is a bit sad, really).

I'm glad I'm not the only one that notices them and sees them differently :)
