Illustration Friday - Pretend

Who doesn't remember doing this as a kid? Especially if you had an older brother. And really especially pretending that you wouldn't get your head knocked in when you ran into the car/tree/mailbox/house that was waiting at the bottom of the hill. The only difference between this illo and my own childhood experience is these guys are wearing helmets (mandated by Harcourt thank you very much.)

In other news, I actually had a great sketch done for last week's Illustration Friday topic - Wise, but discovered that my scanner has died! Momentary vent: is it possible to get a scanner to last longer than 3 or 4 years???!! I"m looking at buying my FOURTH scanner in 14 years. Good heavens, I have a printer that I've had since 1995 and it still works great.
