A Child's Memories


Back in the day, I knew a girl that owned a floating fire-breathing mini-horse! She was so lucky, and always so happy, because she traveled all over with this creature, to India and China, and even to school. You can see the evidence above... I was so jealous, but she was very nice, and let me ride the horse from time to time!

This next picture shows a wonderful memory of mine. We were on a bombing mission over Bloahdfahekd Land, with our drunken polar bear pilot at the controls. I was in charge of the lights, making sure we could see ahead. My neighbor (the one with the floating fire-breathing mini-horse) was in charge of dropping bombs. We were really good at blowing stuff up. I was so proud of our blowing stuff up skills.

I never knew blowing stuff up with bombs could be so beautiful. I need to make friends with a drunken polar bear.

I want a friend like that. Mine only have cars. It sucks.

Rachel: I will send you his email right away :)

Frenchy: hehe, they thank you for the love

Zhu: Thanks Zhu! Downpayment on these biplanes has gone down, should be more affordable now, hihi...

That's an awesome plane, but what impresses me the most is the exceptionally long scarf the drunken polar bear is wearing.

Congratulations on blowing stuff up! I don't know of anyone else who can put that on their resume!

You have the most interesting friends, Sebastien. And I can't decide which one of you had the funnest job.

sammy said...

is this the same mimi-horse, or does she have more than one?
i think i need to buy a mimi-stable, now!

I had a horse like that when I was younger...

my dad used to ride to school on a big blackbird but it didn't spew fire, it pooed out glitter

Sebastien said...

Tara: Scarfs are very fashionable. Especially super long ones. I wear them everywhere.

Laura: Each job was integral to the operation, so it is hard to choose which one is most fun and awesome!

Sammy: This is a good question... are there variations within the mini-horse genre?

Mrmanuel: Sigh, you were sooooo lucky!!!

Pod: Ohhhhh, how interesting! What a wonderful idea for a drawing (although I might have to forgo the poo part!)

You are speaking to my mind set here for sure. As someone who spends a great deal of time surrounded by artwork created by children I can't help but notice the similiarities. Yours is more skillful but it maintains the sense of fun and simplicity. I have a drawing that I scanned that a little girl created depicting someone riding a flying horse (I think it is on my sidebar under Children's Artwork) and it is like your fire breathing horse.

Some of it also makes me think of The Little Prince. I really love your stuff.

Gary, thank you so much for the kind words. What is it about flying horses that makes people happy? I have no clue, but I know they make me happy!
