This picture I've made is an entry for the James and the Giant Peach contest. I thought this would be an interesting contest to join, and so I thought I would give it a shot and join in on it.
So basically, the whole idea behind the contest is you put yourself in James' shoes and imagine where you would like to go to escape the real world. So I've made me flying into the sky with my red balloon and my cat Angel, who unfortunately died almost a year ago. I felt like I should add a companion to my picture, so I've added Angel. I have been thinking about her lately, and how much I loved her. Ever since then, I've missed her ever since. So I thought it would be nice to have her be apart of this contest
Anyway, I have drawn me in the sky, because ever since I was little, I had a BIG imagination. I always imagined me in fantasy worlds or having my pets like Angel talk to me back and cheer me up when I'm feeling down, or even have my toys come to life. I even had a lot of imaginary friends as a kid. Just crazy and random stuff like that lol. I am also a constant daydreamer. It's so bad, during class at my school, I'll be staring outside window and my teacher would call out my name and say, "Stop daydreaming and pay attention!" I get a kick everytime that happens to me xD lol. I have always dreamed of flying, and I still do sometimes. Escape from reality and just jump high into the air and start to fly into the sky.
I wanted to join this contest, because one of my favorite movie as a child was James and the Giant Peach and Tim Burton is the best at movies and for all he does to make us laugh, cry, and help us see things we've never seen before. He brings out the child in me when ever I watch a movie of his. I remember watching a lot of his movies throughout my childhood and I remembered loving every one of them! So this is why I joinned this contest. Doesn't matter whether I win or lose the contest, for what it's worth, I had a great time drawing this entry and I just absolutely love what I do. It brought back a lot of good, special memories. ~
Well, I hope you guys like it and have a lovely day
