Gone astray?







































Whilst window shopping, our storybook trio come across some very familiar 'merchandise'.
My take on this week's Illustration Friday theme, "Tales and Legends".

Okay, now this is funny. It reminds me of the underground organ thieves. You know, the urban legend about the guy who is drugged and wakes up in a bathtub full of ice to find his kidney is gone (presumably to the black market). Well, this makes me think of that but with fairy tale puppets and marionettes. The hysterical part is that Pinocchio is using a wooden crutch to take the place of his missing wooden leg. Very sad. Yet, very funny and twisted. I like. Well done.
