Illustration Friday | Balloon

The magic of a red balloon. Oh, the places you'll go! :-)

A magia de um balão vermelho. Oh, que lugares você vai visitar! :-)


And here's a sketch for a birthday card I did a while back. I kind of like red balloons...

E aqui um desenho antigo para um cartão de aniversário que fiz há algum tempo atrás. Eu gosto de balões vermelhos...
